Positive COVID-19 cases increase to 1635 statewide

Positive COVID-19 cases in the state continued to rise over the weekend.  Since Friday, the state has reported 224 additional positive COVID-19 cases, bringing the state’s total as of Sunday to 1635.  There have not been any additional positive cases reported in Lake, Miner, Moody, or McCook counties.  

According to the state Department of Health, Minnehaha and Lincoln counties account for the majority of the increase in cases overall.  Minnehaha County is also the location of a large outbreak at it’s Smithfield Foods pork processing plant.  

Governor Kristi Noem appeared in a live video on Facebook on Sunday, reminding people to enjoy the nice weather, but also not to forget to keep following the necessary guidelines.

Noem said people must stay diligent to protect those most susceptible to contracting COVID-19.

Noem said the state continues to take proactive measures in Minnehaha and Lincoln counties.  She said late last week that she expects a report from the CDC this week on its visit to the Smithfield plant in Sioux Falls.
