Testing

Many of DHEC’s COVID-19 testing options are fast, convenient, and no cost to you. Help protect yourself and others by preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Protect Yourself & Your Family

COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are still at high levels. Take the steps below to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in South Carolina.

 
Stay 6 feet apart

Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you. Also, avoid crowds. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.

 
Get tested

If you are out in the community, DHEC recommends that you get tested often. At least once a month or sooner if someone you’ve been around tests positive or if you develop symptoms
