Governor pushes schools to be open this fall

Governor Kristi Noem says the best place for kids this fall is back in school. She held a news conference at a Sioux Falls Elementary school on Tuesday and said that kids aren’t active spreaders of the coronavirus.

Noem says kids can help slow the spread of any virus.


Noem says many school districts have not heard from a number of their students since March.

Noem says she doesn’t want districts to set minimum numbers of infections to close schools, but rather work to minimize and isolate outbreaks.
