COVID-19 Facts and Resources

What to do if you are sick with COVID-19

You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis. 

People: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.

Animals: Do not handle pets or other animals while sick. See COVID-19 and Animals for more information.

If you have a medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

You should wear a face covering when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) or pets and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a face covering (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then people who live with you should not stay in the same room with you, or they should wear a face covering if they enter your room.

Vaccine Locator

For questions about COVID-19 vaccines, click here.

For the DHEC Vaccine Location, click here.

The vaccine locator will have two options. Once you put in your zip code, you are given all possible options for providers in the zip code.

  1. If the employee clicks on a DHEC provider, they will be taken through the process of scheduling an appt. Once the employee answers the question, they are offered locations for DHEC providers. This is a limited amount of providers and locations. [I went through the process and there were none in my zip code at this time – but I could go to other counties.]
  2. If you choose any other provider such as Walmart, Walgreens – MUSC (while listed is not taking appts at this time) - Roper Hospital was not listed. The employee clicks on a link to go to the providers website to schedule their appointment.
