Revelers in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Ignore Social Distancing Recommendations

Groups of people gathered on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to dance and party on May 17, ignoring social distancing guidelines from city and state leaders.

The video shows people walking in the middle of the crowded boulevard, while others rode on packed golf carts. At one point music can be heard playing and some people dance in the street, on top of their golf carts, and on the sidewalk.

Kenyari Fields captured the video over the weekend as restaurants and beaches began to reopen in Myrtle Beach over the last two weeks.
