2021 Classes- New Safety Protocols

The United Way of Greenwood and Abbeville Counties and The United Center for Community Care wants to provide community members a safe, clean location to participate in valuable and crucial training opportunities, like Mental Health First Aid. To do this, we strictly adhere to CDC, SCDHEC, and local guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This training course will be held in the United Center Gym for your safety, where we can maintain a 6-feet distance between participants. All participants must wear a face-covering/mask while inside the United Center Gym and other United Center facilities, except briefly for eating and drinking. A boxed lunch will be provided, and space is available outside to eat lunch if weather permits. Hand Sanitizer, disposable face masks, and other sanitizing products are available for all participants.
