Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): What South Dakotans Need to Know
Information on this page has been updated as of 4/9/20
As COVID-19, commonly referred to as the coronavirus, continues to spread to different parts of the world, all of us should take precautions to protect our health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are good sources for up-to-date, verified and factual information about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). COVID-19 is the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
If you believe you may have COVID-19 symptoms, please call your doctor immediately. It is recommended that you call ahead before going to the hospital or doctor’s office so as to not infect others.
On March 27, 2020, the president signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act into law. This comprehensive relief package will provide immediate, direct assistance to South Dakota families and businesses during these unprecedented times. As we move to the implementation phase of the CARES Act, we put together a FAQ page to help answer questions South Dakotans may have.
We hope you find these resources helpful. As always, don’t hesitate to contact one of our offices with any specific questions or concerns.
