DHEC Releases COVID-19 Re-opening Guidance for Businesses

Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Monday, April 27th, 2020

The first Accelerate SC meeting was more of an introductory meeting. Here are a few highlights: 

Governor McMaster said the last thing he wants is to have a relapse when we open SC back up. He wants to go as quickly and as safely as possible. 

Most of the heavy lifting for the group will take place next week when the subgroups begin meeting. 

The four subgroups are as follows:

Governance– Mayor Knox White (Greenville), Chairman

Protection – DHEC and Dr. Cole co-chairs 

Response – Bobby Hitt, Commerce Secretary and Helen Hill, CVB co-chairs 

Resources – Marsha Adams from the Department of Administration and Greg Ryberg (former state Senator), co-chairs 

Full SC Accelerate group will meet again in two weeks.
