COVID-19 UPDATE: Current SCWA Members are receiving regular email updates and opportunites for educational webinars. If you are not a member and would like to be included, click the green JOIN/RENEW button above. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and SCWA seeks to be responsive to the fluidity of the situation. As more and more government entities release new and sometimes conflicting guidance, we, as an association, wish to reiterate that each owner/operator must interpret the guidance applicable to their marketplace and respond accordingly. We will continue to work with government entities in hopes of providing clarity as it relates to the car wash industry.
