Council members instead approved a resolution asking, but not requiring, people to wear face coverings, social distance and wash hands.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control said a lack of mask-wearing has been adding to the increase of cases statewide.

With the holiday weekend approaching, state health officials have been urging everyone to celebrate at home.
