COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster is calling on the state health department to report any COVID-19 cases among students and staff in public schools.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control should develop a process to collect and disclose cases in every school district in the state, McMaster wrote Monday in a letter to DHEC Chairman Mark Elam. That data, stripped of identifying information to comply with confidentiality laws, should be reported on a daily basis, he added.

“The disclosure of this information is in the public’s interest, and it will ensure that parents, teachers and the public have accurate and authoritative information,” McMaster wrote.
