Sabrina Sanford moves her sons and dog from the Happy Holiday Motel to the Midtown Inn in Myrtle Beach on Sunday. The city of Myrtle Beach has ordered all hotels, motels, campgrounds and Airbnbs to have the guests clear out by noon on Sunday with a few exceptions. The ordinance also prohibits new reservations prior to May 1. Sanford said her family was told to leave the Happy Holiday because of the city’s ordinance, but a son’s teacher reached out to the Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Brenda Bethune for help. Bethune said the ordinance allows for exceptions to be made if a family is in danger of being homeless. Sanford said she is a home health worker and has lost her job in the wake of the COVID-19 isolations. Photo by Janet Morgan/janet.morgan@myhorrynews.com
