The number of South Dakotans infected with COVID-19 continues to decline.

The state Health Department says there are just over 30,000 active cases. That’s the sixth day of falling numbers.

366 people are still hospitalized in the state with COVID-19. That number is down 27 from the previous report.

However, another 10 South Dakotans have died with the disease—including the state's first death in the 10-to-19 age group.

The portion of eligible South Dakotans fully vaccinated against the disease remains at 57 percent. That number has changed little during the wave of infections caused by the omicron variant of the virus.
