coronavirus 2

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control announced the following COVID-19 updates as of Wednesday.

NOTE: Wednesday's low case counts are due to an internal systems issue at DHEC. Representatives said they are actively working to correct it. Once the issue is resolved with the vendor, they will update the data within the County-Level Dashboard to reflect the cases missing from Wednesday's numbers. The dashboard is available HERE.
