The City of Cayce leaders vote to pressure governor for statewide stay at home order

Cayce, SC – Today, City of Cayce Council Members voted unanimously to adopt a Resolution calling for Governor Henry McMaster to immediately issue a state-wide mandatory Shelter-in-Place Order for the health and well-being of our Cayce residents and all South Carolinians. (See the full resolution here)

On March 13, 2020, just two weeks ago, the State of South Carolina had 33 known cases of COVID-19.

As of today, South Carolina has 539 confirmed cases, thirteen fatalities and a backlog of 1,800 tests.

While we applaud the Governor’s efforts to ask visitors traveling to our state from “hotspots” to self-quarantine, it’s not enough. SCDHEC has long confirmed that we have “community spread” and not just new cases from outside the state. The current orders are simply not enough.

“Instead of risking lives while letting the economy limp along with patchwork solutions, the Governor can implement orders that are consistent and far-reaching especially as the NC Governor has just done so. If our Governor continues to avoid taking swift action that will protect our citizens and possibly avoid a long-term economic impact, then the City of Cayce will continue to consider a local shelter-in-place ordinance,” stated Cayce Mayor, Elise Partin.

Mayor Partin and the members of the Cayce City Council will be reaching out to businesses and residents asking for how COVID-19 is impacting their health, their family and their day-to-day life. This information will help Council thoroughly weigh options and take appropriate action that will best protect its residents, businesses and visitors.
