Congress continued work toward an 11th-hour compromise on COVID-19 relief Monday as South Carolina once again recorded more than 2,000 cases of the virus.

South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control reported 2,121 cases on Monday, with 21 additional deaths from COVID-19.

All told, South Carolina has seen more than 2,000 cases all but four days so far in December.

At this point, it appears that Congress will re-up some COVID-19 relief measures, including a second round of checks for Americans, before the year ends. Under current proposals, individual filers who earn less than $75,000 and joint filers with combined household incomes less than $150,000 will be eligible for $600 checks each. Some who earn slightly more will be eligible for scaled-back relief.

The Washington Post has a tool online where you can see your estimated check.
