Sorry for the delayed update this week and sorry for no SCSPE News last week. I was on vacation following the successful SC Engineering Conference and Trade Show last week, and we’re coming at you late today as SCSPE had an Executive Committee Meeting this morning.
The country and state continue to reopen. Schools are starting back, and even the SCDOT expects to have 100% personnel back at Park street in the next two weeks. That does not mean we are out of the woods. Currently the US has a total of 5,682,491 total cases of COVID-19 with 176,223 deaths because of the virus. Here in South Carolina we have 112,088 confirmed cases and almost 2,500 South Carolinians have passed away.
