COLUMBIA, S.C. (WSPA) – Gov. Henry McMaster and hospitality industry leaders announced the Palmetto Priority safety initiative for restaurants across South Carolina Tuesday afternoon.

“This is a way to guarantee, to certify to the public that that particular restaurant is doing all the things that the science today says they should do.” South Carolina, Republican, Governor, Henry McMaster said.

The initiative is part of an effort to provide clean and safe restaurant environments for staff and customers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The statewide program is called Palmetto Priority, and it’s only for restaurants.

It provides certification decals for them to display after they complete a checklist of procedures, free online education, and take part a DHEC food safety inspection.

Each decal will have a QR-code, customers can use to get more information and report any health and safety concerns online.

Restaurants will have three chances to take care of confirmed issues, after the third strike, they will lose the decal and certification.
