Yesterday afternoon South Carolina DHEC released their COVID-19 Re-opening Guidance for Businesses.
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.
