*Editor’s Note: All information is subject to change as the situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving. 

“Is Myrtle Beach open?” is the question on many people’s minds. The answer to that question is quickly changing as government entities work to quell the spread of coronavirus in the area. 

As of March 30, all public beach accesses in South Carolina are closed by order of the governor. Area municipalities have also placed restrictions on new reservations through the end of April. Now is not the time to visit Myrtle Beach, but many hotels are accepting reservations for summer with flexible cancellation policies. 

City of Myrtle Beach

The city of Myrtle Beach passed an ordinance stating that no accommodations providers, including hotels and motels, VRBO-style lodging, condo hotels, and campgrounds, can accept new or extend existing reservations for any period before May 1. Existing reservations for March 28 through April 30 must be canceled or rescheduled. Visitors staying in accommodations from March 1 are exempt from the order, but they may not be joined by other guests. All accommodation guests who do not meet the requirements must leave by noon Sunday, March 28. 

Myrtle Beach has also ordered that all amusements and attractions close by Friday, March 27. The ordinance includes movie and live theaters, moped and golf cart rentals, and amusement parks and arcades. Golf courses may remain open. 

City of North Myrtle Beach

The city of North Myrtle Beach will prohibit any short-term rentals in hotels, motels or other accommodations starting at 7 a.m. Friday, March 27. The restrictions do not apply to visitors currently checked in to their accommodations or emergency workers traveling to the area to assist with COVID response.  

Horry County

Horry County’s ordinance prohibits short-terms rentals from March 28 through April 30 in the unincorporated areas of Horry County. Amusements and attractions must also close. Golf courses are excluded from the order, and golfers are encouraged to practice social distancing on area courses.  

Surfside Beach

The town of Surfside Beach is prohibiting short-term rentals (less than 29 days) at all accommodations in the town from March 28 through April 30. Visitors who are currently checked in may complete their stay. Emergency responders, health care workers and other essential personnel are exempt from the order. 

Pawleys Island

No new checkins are allowed for short-term rentals or other overnight accommodations from 5 p.m. Saturday, March 28, through April 30. Visitors who are currently checked in may complete their stays. Long-term rentals of 30 days or more are still permitted. 

Georgetown County

Georgetown County is prohibiting new short term rentals from March 28 through May 1. No new reservations for that time period may be accepted, and existing reservations must be canceled or rescheduled. Visitors checked in before March 28 may remain through their reservation but cannot extend their stays. Units occupied since March 1 by the same occupant is exempt, but new occupants cannot be added to the unit. Short-term rentals for applicable law enforcement, health or government personnel are exempt from the ordinance. 

Public beach accesses are closed

Gov. Henry McMaster has ordered all public beach accesses closed throughout South Carolina. Public accesses to lakes, rivers, and waterways are also closed. 

Myrtle Beach Restaurants Open for Takeout and Delivery

All South Carolina restaurants have been ordered to halt dine-in service. Many are still offering pickup, curbside takeout or delivery. Some are even selling beer and wine to-go, as well.
