AAUP-CCU attends emergency SC meeting to discuss COVID-19

Members of AAUP-CCU participated in an emergency meeting of the AAUP South Carolina state conference, which was called to discuss the challenges posed by COVID-19. Specifically, the meeting addressed South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster’s refusal to allow our state’s educational institutions to decide what mitigation measures to adopt in order to combat COVID-19. A letter was drafted, which calls on Governor McMaster to “not wait for full ICU beds in South Carolina and the horror realized by Dallas County’s judge Clay Jenkins, who said on 13 August that ‘Your child will wait for another child to die’.”. The letter will soon be communicated to the AAUP-CCU membership for deliberation and possible adoption.
