AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - The city of Aiken has called a special meeting today to temporarily restrict the general public from City Council meetings.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, officials have passed an emergency ordinance suspending normal operating procedures for meetings.

The ban for the general public will last up to 61 days.

Council leaders say the primary purpose of the ordinance would be so that they can continue meeting virtually.
