In an abundance of caution for the community, CareSouth Carolina has announced the postponement of the Spring Fling, Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening at the McColl Health & Wellness Center, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 28.
The event, which will celebrate the opening of CareSouth Carolina’s state-of-the-art McColl Health & Wellness Center, will be rescheduled at a later date.
“We felt it was in the best interest of our communities and all involved to postpone the event at this time,” Chief of Community Health Joe Bittle said. “CareSouth Carolina is regularly monitoring the COVID-19 situation and have introduced several initiatives moving forward to provide the safest experience for our patients who visit our facilities.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that large events and mass gatherings of 50 or more people be postponed for the next eight weeks as a way to prevent and slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
CareSouth Carolina has been in regular contact with the CDC, as well as SC-DHEC, to ensure the best practices are in place for patient care, safety and staff education. The organization has formed a COVID-19 Strategic Team and has posted signs within its facilities to assist in identifying those who may be affected.
“CareSouth Carolina will continue to provide excellent care to its patients at this time,” Bittle said. “The COVID-19 Strategic Team is insuring that CareSouth Carolina is following all of SC-DHEC and the CDC’s guidelines.”
