COVID-19 Community Update – 12/15/2020

Dear SLV owners,

We are continuing to carefully watch and adjust to COVID-19 cases in around our two-state region as well as locally. The following includes several important updates, so please read carefully.

We hosted another COVID-19 testing site at the Monticello parking lot today (12/15/2020) through SC DHEC and Abbeville Area Medical Center. Based on unofficial counts, 480 people were tested earlier today. This was a record number of tests administered. We thank everyone who came out to be tested, which will help SLV, SCDHEC and others to make decisions as we continue to navigate daily through the COVID-19 period. We will report on the results of this latest testing site as soon as results are made available from the lab.

Unfortunately, as we have seen an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in McCormick County, we have also had a few active cases in our SLV Village Office. Through contact tracing and following all safety measures, we have no reason to believe that exposure was extended to SLV owners or other visitors through the Village Office. We continue to disinfect our office (and all facilities) and follow all safety protocols. Through remote working by those who must quarantine and reshuffling of those who are not in quarantine, we have been able to minimize impacts to our services, while also caring for our team members who have been affected by the virus and quarantine requirements. Although our office is open (masks required), we encourage you to call the office at (864) 391-4116 for all business that could be conducted remotely. We also appreciate the thoughts and prayers for those affected. All DHEC protocols continue to be in place and we are confident that normal operations will resume by early next week.

Additionally, all previously reported adjustments and safety protocols that have been made to SLV services remain in effect. The clubs are offering patio counter service and curbside pickup, but remain closed to indoor dining. Please continue to wear masks as per the McCormick County ordinance and as we respectfully ask and remind through signage at the entrance to all SLV facilities. As we work to close out 2020, we look forward to a post-COVID-19 environment in the months ahead — getting back to all the social programs and events that help to make SLV such a great place to live. In the meantime, let’s all renew our resolve to help keep each other safe and well.

Yours in Service,

Kirk Smith
