Officials with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control said they are working on guidance for returning to in-person learning after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention previously released theirs.

Assistant State Epidemiologist Dr. Jane Kelly said they are writing these recommendations with the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in mind.

“The Delta variant spreads more quickly, more easily. We are seeing it in summer camps, I fear we will see it with back to school,” Kelly previously said.
