Based on guidance from the CDC and local public health agencies, we are implementing the following precautionary measures:
As of March 13, 2020, the staff of the South Carolina Chapter will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support for our staff to successfully operate in support of our mission.
Alzheimer’s Association operations will continue, and we will re-evaluate these measures on an ongoing basis and resume in-person engagements as soon as we are able, based on public health guidelines.
All meetings, events and participation in activities (both internal and external) will now be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Details on meetings and events will be posted here (alz.org/sc) as they are available.
During this time, the Alzheimer’s Association is available to you 24/7 for around-the-clock care and support via our Helpline at 1.800.272.3900.
