On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for April 23, 2020, we head to the coast to see how cities are handling the reopening of beaches after local governments were given the ability to lift bans this week. We also break down annoucements by Gov. Henry McMaster and Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman that schools will remain closed for the rest of this academic year. Plus, your voicemails and more!
The South Carolina Lede is here to keep you up to date on important news as the Palmetto State faces the COVID-19 virus. There is so much news out there right now it’s overwhelming. This podcast is for you to get information that matters to you, your family and your fellow South Carolinians. No hype. No fear. Just COVID-19 news and resources to get us all through this.
Each of these special episodes is structured to give you straight up information up front followed by additional context and reporting, your voices, resources and tips and we end it all with a little wind down.
And we want to hear from you! Leave us a 1-minute long voicemail at 803-563-7169 to tell us how you’re coping with COVID-19, what your life is like in quarantine, and what are you watching, reading, and doing during this time of social distancing.
