The following categories of workers are exempted and free to travel and carry out their duties:
• Workers identified as Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers by the Department of Homeland Security. A list of those workers is found here: https://www.cisa.gov/publication/guidance-essential-critical-infrastructure-workforce
• To the extent they are not otherwise included, police officers, firefighters, active duty military, healthcare providers and public works and utility workers employed by the City, County, State and Federal governments.
The City’s curfew ordinance also exempts workers identified as essential by the State of South Carolina. To date, the State has not formally identified those individuals. The City will refer to the list provided by the Department of Homeland Security and will recognize any additional exempt workers should the State identify them in the future.
