Starting today, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control is scaling back the number of Covid-19 testing sites across the state.
Officials say that’s due to declining demand for in-person testing and the increasing demand and supply of Covid-19 at-home rapid antigen tests.
Three sites are closing in Aiken County over the course of the next two weeks.
