  • Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC), and SCDMH’s Long-term Care Medical Team, DMH Long-term Nursing Care Centers are immediately suspending resident visits until further notice, effective Tuesday, March 17, with the exception of end-of-life visits ONLY.   

    This is out of an abundance of caution for our residents; to date, the South Carolina Department of Mental Health is not aware of any cases of presumptive or suspected COVID-19 infection among its patients, residents, or employees.
