The extension, in response to new coronavirus concerns, was announced today by S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster’s office.

“The agency recognizes and appreciates the sacrifices our licensees are making during this difficult time, and we want to do our part in making things easier for them,” department director Emily Farr said in a news release.

Continuing education requirements may be obtained throughout the extended renewal period, according to the release.

“We recognize the toll that this virus is taking on South Carolinians, and we are committed to doing all that we can to support them during these challenging times,” McMaster said in the release. “Director Farr and her team recognized a need, acted quickly to address it, and South Carolinians are better off because of their work.”
