SD County achieves herd immunity, most things reopen

With COVID-19 vaccinations high and infection rates low, the state and the county reopened today after 15 months of closures.
The disappearance of the state’s tier system brings no capacity limits or physical distancing restrictions for the public in most businesses and activities in the region. Essentially, all sectors of the economy can return to pre-pandemic capacity levels.
“The tiers are gone but the pandemic is not,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “People should continue getting vaccinated so that cases go down even further.”
Certain COVID-19 guidance will remain in place for large-scale event settings. People who attend “mega events” indoors will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
All County offices and facilities are now open to the public. Hours of operation may vary at different departments and people are recommended to check ahead.
