(Greenwood, S.C., April 28, 2020) Our primary goal continues to be the safety and care of our team members and patients making Self Regional Healthcare the safest place possible to receive care.
As you all know, South Carolina has chose to reopen department stores; furniture, clothing, and sporting goods stores; flea markets, florists, bookstores, music stores and such. According to Governor McMaster’s order, these businesses will be required to practice social distancing and the occupancy in each store must be limited to five customers per 1,000 square feet of retail space. However, even with these social distancing measures in place, the increased retail activity will very likely lead to more opportunities for COVID-19 to spread in our community. The executive order is certainly good news for our struggling local businesses, but will also require extra caution on everyone’s part in order to avoid a surge of new infections. To take our precautions at Self Regional Healthcare up another level, we have now begun requiring all patients and visitors entering the hospital, or any of our facilities, to wear a mask. We encourage the public to be prepared when arriving at Self Regional Medical Center or any of our physician practices to wear the same type mask you would wear to the grocery store or out in the community. Home-made cloth masks are perfectly adequate. If you do not have a mask, we will issue you one before allowing you in our facility.
