Governor: All SC Schools Closed Through End Of March

 In Local News

By order of Governor McMaster, the School District of Newberry County will be closed until at least the end of the month due to the COVID-19 virus. The School District of Newberry County will be providing additional information.

Avoid large crowds and when in crowds use personal distancing, practice personal hygiene by washing hands after contact, avoid the elderly and those that have health conditions.

If you do not feel well, do not go out in public and do not come into contact with the vulnerable groups. If you feel like you have flu like symptoms use the MUSC tele-medicine site or the Prisma Health tele-medicine site for screening.

Please do not panic. The decisions being made are done purely to limit the opportunity for exposure and spread.

There is no need to hoard items.

Again, the practices taken are for preventative purposes to try to control exposure and illness.
