A New York Times analysis of CDC data found that South Carolina had the highest per capita case rate in the country, as of August 31 with 100 cases per 100,000 residents over the previous seven days.

On this edition of the South Carolina Lede for September 4, 2021, we break down the South Carolina Supreme Court's decision this week that found Columbia's mask mandate for schools to be illegal. Also on this episode: new analysis of CDC data by The New York Times finds that the Palmetto State has the highest per capita COVID-19 case rate in the country; HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge visits the state to promote vaccinations; and much more.
