July 20--There are now 203 confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported in Union County, with five cases added to the total on July 20. Union County's infection rate is 743.15 per 100,000 population. That is the fourth-lowest infection rate in the Upstate (behind Cherokee, Anderson, and Oconee counties) and 6th-lowest in the state.

Spartanburg has 3114 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 973.78 per 100,000 population.

Laurens County has 938 confirmed cases, 15 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 1389.77 per 100,000 population.

Newberry has 549 confirmed cases, 5 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 1428.2 per 100,000 population.

Cherokee County has 347 confirmed cases, 10 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 605.58 per 100,000 population.

Chester County has 366 confirmed cases, 6 confirmed death, and an infection rate of 1135.09 per 100,000 population.

Fairfield County has 433 confirmed cases, 23 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 1937.62 per 100,000 population.

York County has 2430 confirmed cases, 14 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 864.83 per 100,000 population.

Charleston County has the most cases and highest infection rate in the state, with 9618 confirmed cases, 84 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 2337.84 per 100,000 population.

Greenville County has the most cases and highest infection rate in the Upstate, with 8571 confirmed cases, 132 confirmed deaths, and an infection rate of 1637.12 per 100,000 population.

Overall in the state, 71,213 cases have been confirmed, along with 232 probable cases, with 1147 confirmed deaths and 17 probable deaths.

DHEC uses a base population rate of 100,000 to compare counties' infection rates. This puts counties of all sizes on equal footing, as smaller counties have their actual infections multiplied to hit the base 100,000 population, while larger counties have their cases divided in the same way. This way, it is easy to compare how the virus is spreading. A larger county may have more actual cases but a lower infection rate than a smaller county with a smaller total of actual cases.


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.
