Union Medical Center will offer drive-through COVID-19 testing Monday-Friday from 12-4 for as long as is needed. In order to get tested, you must have an order from your physician or telehealth provider and present it at the time of testing. The orders are given to those who present possible COVID-19 symptoms of cough, fever, and shortness of breath.

With record unemployment claims last week reported nationwide (6.6 million), how did South Carolina fare? Claims in the state more than doubled since the week ending March 21st, from 31,054 to 64,856. That is 32 times the number of claims from the week ending March 14th. In Union County, 175 new claims for unemployment were filed last week, compared to 66 the week before, a 265% increase. February's unemployment rate statewide was 2.5%, and in Union County, it was 3.9%. Look for those rates to increase significantly when the final March numbers are reported.


From the SC Department of Employment and Workforce:

Important Information to Know About the Unemployment Insurance Process

1. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act has been signed into law, but
these benefits are not yet available and the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce is
awaiting further guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor for state-specific
implementation. For those who have already filed an unemployment insurance claim, please
continue to file your weekly claim. For those who are self-employed, independent contractors,
nonprofit employees, and gig economy workers, or requesting an extension of benefits and are
not currently filing weekly claims, please continue to visit our website at, as we will
continue to provide additional information and guidance as it becomes available.

2. Please visit our COVID-19 Resource Hub at and social media as we will be communicating
how this legislation will affect our process as soon as we know more.

3. Due to the influx of unemployment claims being filed, the national system known as ICON hub,
which all states use to validate social security numbers on claims in real time, is being
overwhelmed with validation requests. We are required to validate social security numbers to
avoid fraud and prevent identity theft. The Department of Labor is aware and is working to
expand its database capacity.

4. The unemployment insurance claims process is 100 percent online. You do not have to visit an
SC Works center to file for benefits. There is no “in-person” process.

5. Most of the questions our agency is receiving through our call center can be found on our website and our YouTube page SC DEW. Check the site in order to avoid the wait!
