Current COVID-19 Response Plan Level 5
Things of Note:
Deaths remain at peak levels while reports of new cases are down but limited vaccines and new variants make the future uncertain. Cases are going down across the country EXCEPT in North Dakota and 5 others. In South Dakota, cases are highest in Jones County followed by Grant, McPherson, Edmunds and Perkins. We continue to track Minnesota, North Dakota and Vermont for comparison. With similar populations, South Dakota has 1,705 deaths. Vermont has 171.
