Scientists are still researching how long the COVID-19 virus can survive on surfaces.

South Dakota state epidemiologist Dr. Josh Clayton says at this point, it could be up to three days.

State Secretary of Health Kim Malsam-Rysdon says the majority of the time, a person gets COVID-19 by coming into contact with someone who has it.

Clayton says people not displaying symptoms can also spread COVID-19 to others.

The Health Department reports a third positive case of COVID-19 in Hughes County. The first two cases are now considered to have recovered.

To date, 165 people in South Dakota have tested positive and over 4200 have tested negative. 17 people have been hospitalized and 57 have recovered.

PIERRE, S.D.—The number of cases of coronavirus in South Dakota reached 165 Thursday—up 36 cases from the day before.

For people hoping this nightmare is over soon, Governor Noem says don’t bank on it. She says all of the social distancing, hand washing, self isolating, all the terms you’ve heard in recent days and weeks will likely need to last well into the summer….

The end result will be pushing out the peak date of South Dakota’s coronavirus cases into late summer….

Noem talked about when that peak could happen…

Businesses that have been forced to close because of the pandemic might to get the chance to re-open until the peak is behind South Dakota.

If that’s not until July or August, KWAT’s Mike Tanner asked Governor Noem how those businesses will survive…

In other words, hunker down and prepare to deal with this virus through the summer, maybe even into the fall.
