Pennington County GOP Facebook

An active member of the Pennington County Republican Party has tested positive for COVID-19, according to an email by party officials.

That person attended a GOP convention event held in Rapid City last weekend.

The state party set up a digital convention this year, and passed temporary rules that allowed members to attend virtually for social distancing.

But, the Pennington County GOP joined the convention from a conference hall at the Ramkota in Rapid City.

Since then, one attendee has tested positive for COVID-19.
