SCHA & Other Partners Launch “Slow the Spread SC” Campaign

July 6, 2020

SCHA, BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, and the South Carolina Medical Association are joining together in an effort to persuade the public to limit potential exposure to COVID-19 as we enter the July 4th weekend. As coronavirus cases continue to rise in South Carolina, we are also seeing a significant increase in hospitalizations and want everyone to understand the best ways to protect themselves and others from COVID-19.

The “Slow the Spread” public service campaign will begin airing on TV and on social media in advance of the July 4th holiday weekend. In addition, a website,, will be updated regularly with useful information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Be on the lookout for more videos and materials from this initiative as we work to educate the public on mask-wearing and social distancing on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.
