DHEC COVID-19 Case Numbers 09-27-21.jpg
Despite several weeks of declining cases of COVID-19 in the state, health officials still urge caution and say preventative measures should still be taken, especially since only 51.7% of the eligible population is fully vaccinated.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for September 28, 2021: a Republican state senator pens an op-ed on how school districts can get around the state's mask mandate prohibition; state epidemiologists warn of the potential of another COVID-19 surge as case rates continue to fall; a look at SC Housing's multi-million dollar rental and utility assistance program; and more.
