June 22--There are now 62 confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported in Union County, with four cases added to the total on June 22. Union County's infection rate is 226.97 per 100,000 population. That is the third-lowest infection rate in the Upstate (behind Oconee and Cherokee counties) and 5th-lowest in the state.

Spartanburg has 1247 cases, 39 deaths, and an infection rate of 389.95 per 100,000 population.

Laurens County has 254 cases, 4 deaths, and an infection rate of 376.34 per 100,000 population.

Newberry has 137 cases, 3 deaths, and an infection rate of 356.4 per 100,000 population.

Cherokee County has 112 cases, 6 deaths, and an infection rate of 195.46 per 100,000 population.

Chester County has 146 cases, 1 death, and an infection rate of 452.8 per 100,000 population.

Fairfield County has 259 cases, 20 deaths, and an infection rate of 1158.99 per 100,000 population.

York County has 859 cases, 11 deaths, and an infection rate of 305.72 per 100,000 population.

Greenville County has the most cases in the state, with 3768 cases, 74 deaths, and an infection rate of 719.71 per 100,000 population.

Lee County has the highest infection rate in the state, with 256 cases, 20 deaths, and an infection rate of 1521.27 per 100,000 population.

Overall in the state, 25,666 cases have been confirmed, along with 35 probable cases, with 659 deaths.

DHEC uses a base population rate of 100,000 to compare counties' infection rates. This puts counties of all sizes on equal footing, as smaller counties have their actual infections multiplied to hit the base 100,000 population, while larger counties have their cases divided in the same way. This way, it is easy to compare how the virus is spreading. A larger county may have more actual cases but a lower infection rate than a smaller county with a smaller total of actual cases.

Instructions for sewing cloth masks

Below are instructions on how to make a homemade face mask with elastic:

Materials needed (with elastic)

  • Tight-weave cotton fabric (i.e. quilting cotton)

  • Fabric must be newly purchased within approximately the past year and never used.

  • Wash and dry fabric without fragrance or dyes prior to sewing.

  • Rope elastic, beading cord elastic will work. You may also use 1/8 inch flat elastic if 1/4 inch is unavailable. Some have used wider flat elastic and cut it in half with some success.

One adult mask requires two (2) 9 inch x 6 inch pieces tight-weave cotton and two 7 inch pieces of 1/4 inch elastic. Therefore, one yard of 44 inch wide fabric yields 12-15 masks. You need 7.5 yards of elastic for 25 masks (14 inches per mask).

You can make two sizes: adult or child. Adult-sized masks will be the greatest need.

Put right sides of cotton fabric together. Be sure any fabric design is placed horizontally.

Cut 9 x 6 (adult) or 7.5 x 5 (child)

Starting at the center of the bottom edge, sew to the first corner, stop. Sew the elastic with the edge out into the corner. A few stitches forward and back will hold this.

Sew to the next corner, stop, and bring the other end of the same elastic to the corner and sew a few stitches forward and back.

Now sew across that top of the mask to the next corner. Again, put an elastic with the edge out.

Sew to the next corner and sew in the other end of the same elastic.

Sew across the bottom leaving about 1.5 inch to 2 inch open. Stop, cut the thread. Turn inside out.

Pin 3 tucks on each side of the mask. Make sure the tucks are the same direction

Sew around the edge of the mask twice.

How do I donate?

To donate masks to Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, please email

You can also drop off masks at Crescent Hospice, 839 Main Street, Suite D, in Buffalo--they need masks for their caregivers, and the facilities they serve have requested masks, as well.
