Thanks to the efforts of organizations like these and individuals fighting on the front lines of this battle, South Carolina continues to soar. Watch my speech from Charleston International Airport

As our state continues to reopen, please remember to wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds, use cloth masks in public (leaving medical-grade masks for medical personnel), and – critically – stay home when feeling ill. More CDC guidelines and other helps are available at

Thank you again for your work in stopping the spread of the virus and, now, in restarting our economy. I look forward to seeing great days ahead as South Carolinians continue to work together.
