SC Housing is closely monitoring developments concerning the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our state and considers the health, safety, and well-being of our staff, customers, and partners to be our highest priority. We join forces with Governor Henry McMaster, health officials, and others in our state in proactively addressing this public health risk to our citizens.
We are implementing the recommended Center for Disease and Control (CDC) precautionary measures to promote social distancing and limiting our staff travel and participation in external events to mission-critical activities. We are confident that these actions will allow us to continue essential business functions in a manner that safeguards the health interests of everyone concerned. We also have contingencies in place for critical staff to work remotely in the event of an office closure.
COVID-19 has been declared a public health emergency on both a state and national level. SC Housing understands the tremendous health risk that COVID-19 poses to our community. Please be assured that we are taking “all necessary and appropriate actions” to help our state to address this public health threat. We will continue to monitor this rapidly changing situation and provide you with additional updates as needed.
