DHEC's Public Health Laboratory receives samples from healthcare providers to be tested for COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved some private labs in South Carolina to also conduct this CDC-approved testing for COVID-19. These labs are required to report cases of the virus to DHEC.
COVID-19 Testing in South Carolina
|Negative tests (Public Health Laboratory only)||5,441|
Positive Cases Indicated by ZIP Code and Heat Map
The ZIP-code level information here as well as the heat map available here indicate reported cases of COVID-19 for the previous 14 days, as that is the time-frame for when an individual would be contagious. However, there are many people within our communities who have the virus and have never been tested, and because of this, we’ll never have information that accurately represents every case of COVID-19. Regardless of the number of reported cases within an area, all South Carolinians should take seriously the recommended precautions for protecting against this disease.
