COVID-19

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS

State health officials reported 1,174 new confirmed cases and 13 probable cases of the novel coronavirus on Monday, along with 27 additional confirmed deaths and one probable death.

State health officials reported 1,053 new confirmed cases and eight probable cases of the novel coronavirus on Sunday, along with seven additional confirmed deaths.

State health officials reported 1,797 new confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus on Saturday, sending the state to more than 200,000 cumulative cases, but no new deaths linked to the virus were recorded.

As COVID-19 cases rise during the holiday season, the possibility of promising vaccines being made available to health care workers and at-risk populations gives encouragement that the tide of the novel coronavirus spread will ebb.

Abbeville County health practitioners are ready to start a COVID-19 vaccination program. They just need the vaccine.

Nurse practitioner Teri Lawson who works in Greenwood area nursing homes volunteered to take part in a Phase 3 COVID-19 Moderna clinical vaccine trial earlier this year.
