COVID-19 Flare-up in SC

The following message was shared with us by fellow GWCDP member, Dylan Fender:

When it comes to matters of public health, access to timely, accurate and trusted information is important. That’s why we’re reaching out to community leaders like you. With your help, we’re going to get the word out about COVID-19 here in South Carolina. 

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is developing communications toolkits to help support response efforts at the state and community level. 

Our first toolkit provides messaging on the importance of wearing masks to protect yourself and those around you. Our mask toolkit, provides messages, graphics and videos to help: 

  • Ensure current, correct messaging from a trusted source. 
  • Create collateral materials. 
  • Share resources. 

All graphics and suggested messages are available for use on social media, emails, web pages and other platforms. 
Help us stop the spread in the Palmetto State by spreading accurate information, like how to wear a mask. Visit to learn more.

Together, we are South Carolina strong.
