Additionally, the MBACC has launched a visit responsibly campaign encouraging visitors to come to the Grand Strand, but follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for hygiene, social distancing and healthy travel.
“Our beautiful beaches and many of our businesses are open and safe to visit. We just respectfully ask everyone, local residents and our visitors to proactively do their part to help limit the spread of the virus. Some of the health guidelines may be inconvenient, but they will save lives and help ensure the long-term recovery of the Grand Strand,” a statement from the chamber read.
