Greenville, South Carolina - In the light of the growing COVID-19 crisis, NPHC-GG is changing our face-to-face meetings to online conference calls. The first meeting this affects is our upcoming meeting on March 30, 2020 at 6:15 PM.

We are urging all of our member chapters to limit their events to comply with any local, state and national guidelines. Currently (as of 3/17/20), South Carolina Governor's Office is asking groups not to have any events with more 50* or more people.  

All members should promote CDC's guidelines for helping to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, include the following items:
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly (at least 20 secs)
  • If you cough, cough into your elbow, not your hands. 
  • When you are out, practice "Social Distancing" (keeping more than 6 FT apart) whenever possible. 
  • Don't go to work, if you feel sick.
  • If you feel sick, call your doctor or using Tele-Health appointments : (MUSC or PRISMA).

* National guidelines are for individuals to only gather in group less than 10 people.
