Horry County Council Enacts Emergency Ordinance Prohibiting Shorter-Term Rentals & Amusement Type Activities

Today County Council held an emergency meeting and enacted Emergency Ordinance 26-20 prohibiting shorter-term rentals and amusement type activities in the unincorporated areas of Horry County from Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. through April 30, 2020.

Golf courses are not restricted in the ordinance and are allowed to remain open. We continue to encourage appropriate social distancing.

The Myrtle Beach International Airport and all other airports managed by the Horry County Department of Airports remain open and operational. Horry County Government does not have the authority to make a unilateral decision about the closure of airports. That is under the purview of the Federal Aviation Administration. Airlines can also alter flight schedules. In addition, just like in a hurricane, it is important that the airports remain open for County emergency logistics, including delivery of supplies.
