As the coronavirus continues to tear across the country, here are a few ways you can help support Charleston while self-quarantining.
Restaurants and bars across South Carolina are no longer able to operate with dine-in options under an executive order issued by Gov. Henry McMaster, so be sure to check Charleston City Paper’s comprehensive list of delivery and takeout options. The list has been continually updated and broken up into different areas of town for simple ordering, so get ready to eat!
The American Red Cross has an ongoing critical need for blood donations during the pandemic to help those affected, as well as other patients.

We have the privilege to witness people step up to help during times of disaster and crisis. Today is no different. Blood donors and collections staff have made it possible to meet the immediate needs of patients relying on lifesaving blood products. Unfortunately, the coronavirus crisis appears to be far from over. We encourage you to keep scheduled appointments for the weeks ahead to ensure a stable blood supply throughout this pandemic. #COVID19 #donateblood #everydayheroes
The easiest thing that we all can do during this time is stay home in order to keep ourselves safe. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster issued a mandatory “home or work” order on Monday requiring that people should stay home unless they are “working, visiting family, exercising outside at a safe distance or obtaining necessary goods or services.” For more information on the order, click here.
