Message from Secretary Hitt: Resources and guidance for businesses during COVID-19

As the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues around the world, the health and wellness of all South Carolinians is our top priority.

From an industry perspective, manufacturers are improvising to lessen disruptions to supply chains, staffing and demand. Businesses, big and small, are adjusting their daily operations to follow the most up-to-date recommendations from health officials. 

While the full impact of COVID-19 is still unknown, we want to assure the business community that Team South Carolina is here to assist throughout this unprecedented event. In an effort to provide guidance and much-needed tools for our industry, S.C. Commerce has launched the online COVID-19 Business Resource Center.  

Team South Carolina has repeatedly proven our ability to overcome adversity in times of crisis and emerge stronger and more united than before. In the weeks and months ahead, we will remain steadfast in our commitment to helping friends, family, neighbors and strangers as we prove once again our state's resiliency.
