Recent Disease Activity by County
Last updated November 25, 2020. This data has been regularly updated on Mondays, however, to accommodate requests from schools districts, DHEC will begin releasing this report on Thursdays instead to allow schools to make plans for the following week with the latest information available.

CDC recommends that all decisions about implementing school-based strategies should be made locally, in collaboration with local health officials who can help determine the level of transmission in the community. DHEC is providing this county-level data about disease transmission to support decision-making at the local level. It is not meant to be a stand-alone document.
