RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN/KOTA TV) - South Dakota has 22 more positive COVID-19 cases, bringing the current number of infected to 90; still mostly East River. In Wyoming, that number is 86.

Minnehaha County now has 25 cases; while West River Pennington remains with just four; Lawrence with three; and one each in Meade, Todd and Lyman counties.

Of the positive cases, 29 people have already recovered; and one death was reported. Another 3,127 people have tested negative.

South Dakota at this time has one pending test. There were reports that supplies needed to conduct tests had been diverted to higher priority areas; so we don’t know if there are people who should be tested but are not getting it done.

As of Sunday morning, Wyoming had 86 positive cases of the coronavirus; out of 1,203 tested.

The spread of COVID-19 in Wyoming is statewide, with the most cases popping up in Fremont and Laramie counties.

People seeking information on COVID-19 should make sure it comes from verifiable, accurate sources, such as the Centers for Disease Control, the South Dakota Department of Health or the Wyoming Department of Health.
