City of Charleston Coronavirus March 16 PM Update
 
The city of Charleston continues to operate at OPCON 2, indicating a state of modified operations intended to limit person-to-person contact. 
 
Charleston City Council met telephonically this afternoon to receive an update on the city’s response to the coronavirus. During the meeting, City Council approved a state of emergency declaration, as well as a set of three emergency ordinances designed to slow the spread of COVID-19.
 
The first ordinance prohibits price gouging in the city of Charleston.
 
The second ordinance prohibits gatherings of 50 or more people in public, indoor, social gathering establishments. It does not apply to non-social public establishments, such as grocery stores or private offices, though the city still strongly recommends social distancing in those environments.
 
The third ordinance enables City Council, Ways and Means and Standing Committee meetings to be conducted telephonically, by video conference or other virtual means.
 
The emergency ordinances will remain in effect for 60 days, or until the state of emergency is terminated.
