Enjoy the Holidays by Celebrating Safely (COVID-19)
Thanksgiving is a time when many families travel long distances to celebrate together. Travel increases the chance of getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others. If you must travel, be informed of the risks involved.
This year, this may be the most important flu shot of your life.
We’re experiencing the worst public health crisis in 100 years, and it’s never been more important for each and every one of us to stay as healthy as possible. We owe it to ourselves, our loved ones, and the essential workers and first responders who are tirelessly dedicated in their service to the public as we all endure this pandemic together.
Report and Submit Dead Birds to Help DHEC Track West Nile Virus
Now Through November: Residents can help the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) track West Nile virus (WNV) this spring, summer, and fall by submitting recently deceased birds, especially crows, blue jays, house finches, and house sparrows. These species are more susceptible to WNV than other species, making them good candidates for testing. For more information, including locating a local DHEC office for submitting deceased birds, visit scdhec.gov/birdtesting.
