Union County Schools will move to Phase V of our reentry plan on Monday, April 19, 2021.

All students in grades 4k-12th will attend school five days a week.



Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System announced measures that will help eligible residents access COVID-19 vaccines. 

Beginning Friday, Jan. 15, those eligible for vaccination will be able to add their names to a registration list via an online tool at SpartanburgRegional.com/Vaccine. 

Once Spartanburg Regional receives confirmation of additional vaccine allocations from the federal government, we will begin notifying eligible individuals who have registered online at SpartanburgRegional.com/Vaccine. Eligible residents who are unable to register online and have additional questions may also call Spartanburg Regional’s COVID-19 Customer Service by phone at 864-577-4091. 

“We understand that the public is eager to get this vaccine, and we are excited to vaccinate more people in our community,” said David Church, chairman of Spartanburg Regional’s COVID-19 Task Force. “However, like many other states, the supply of the COVID-19 vaccines is limited here in South Carolina. We are asking everyone to be patient.” 

A partnership with the University of South Carolina – Upstate will establish a temporary COVID-19 vaccination clinic for residents of Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties. 

“USC Upstate has been a tremendous partner throughout this pandemic, including hosting Spartanburg Regional’s first drive-thru COVID-19 testing location,” Church said. 

Beginning the week of Monday, Jan. 18, Spartanburg Regional will open a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Army National Guard and University Readiness Center at USC Upstate. Spartanburg Regional is prepared to administer between 8,000 and 10,000 doses per week at the clinic, based on allocations received from the federal government. 

Please understand: 

  • Vaccine supply is limited. At this time, individuals in Phase 1a, including those 70-plus years old, are eligible for the vaccine. 

  • You must have an appointment to receive a vaccine at this location. To register for an appointment, complete the registration form at SpartanburgRegional.com/Vaccine. 

  • Please continue to check with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control and SpartanburgRegional.com for information about eligibility. 


 

“Our hospitals are at peak capacity. Our healthcare workers are exhausted, and we need your help. The vaccine is an opportunity for each of us to keep ourselves and our families safe, to get our economy back on track and our lives back to normal,” said Dr. Christopher Lombardozzi, chief medical officer, Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. “At 95 percent effectiveness, the vaccine is extraordinarily effective at protecting you from the virus. Imagine what normal means to you, then take control by getting vaccinated.”

Instructions for sewing cloth masks

Below are instructions on how to make a homemade face mask with elastic:

Materials needed (with elastic)

  • Tight-weave cotton fabric (i.e. quilting cotton)

  • Fabric must be newly purchased within approximately the past year and never used.

  • Wash and dry fabric without fragrance or dyes prior to sewing.

  • Rope elastic, beading cord elastic will work. You may also use 1/8 inch flat elastic if 1/4 inch is unavailable. Some have used wider flat elastic and cut it in half with some success.

One adult mask requires two (2) 9 inch x 6 inch pieces tight-weave cotton and two 7 inch pieces of 1/4 inch elastic. Therefore, one yard of 44 inch wide fabric yields 12-15 masks. You need 7.5 yards of elastic for 25 masks (14 inches per mask).

You can make two sizes: adult or child. Adult-sized masks will be the greatest need.

Put right sides of cotton fabric together. Be sure any fabric design is placed horizontally.

Cut 9 x 6 (adult) or 7.5 x 5 (child)

Starting at the center of the bottom edge, sew to the first corner, stop. Sew the elastic with the edge out into the corner. A few stitches forward and back will hold this.

Sew to the next corner, stop, and bring the other end of the same elastic to the corner and sew a few stitches forward and back.

Now sew across that top of the mask to the next corner. Again, put an elastic with the edge out.

Sew to the next corner and sew in the other end of the same elastic.

Sew across the bottom leaving about 1.5 inch to 2 inch open. Stop, cut the thread. Turn inside out.

Pin 3 tucks on each side of the mask. Make sure the tucks are the same direction

Sew around the edge of the mask twice.

How do I donate?

To donate masks to Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, please email communitycares@srhs.com.

You can also drop off masks at Crescent Hospice, 839 Main Street, Suite D, in Buffalo--they need masks for their caregivers, and the facilities they serve have requested masks, as well.
