In The Moment ... April 8, 2020 Show 791 Hour 1
As of yesterday's official state count, Beadle County has had 21 total confirmed cases of COVID-19. Eighteen of those people have since recovered. (Keep in mind the definition of "recovered" according to the South Dakota Department of Health is the person is free from fever for three days, their symptoms have resolved, and they have been isolated for an appropriate period of time, usually around seven days.) In a recent press conference, Governor Kristi Noem praised the city of Huron for their efforts to deal with the outbreak. The challenge in South Dakota is far from over, but we welcome Huron Mayor Paul Aylward and Huron Public Information Officer Mark Johnson back to the program for an update.
