COVID-19 Information for Businesses

Information from the South Dakota Department of Health


The Department of Health is again reaching out to you to get information to businesses to assist with mitigation strategies to stop the spread of COVID-19. The information includes:

  1. Updated guidance from CDC and OSHA about safe practices;

  2. Employee screening tools – if businesses have not already implemented an employee screening process, it is highly recommended they do so. Employees who fail the screening process, should be sent home and follow the steps on the document “Preventing the Spread of COVID-19 if you are sick”; and

  3. General information/signage for businesses.

As always, there is a host of information available on the covid.sd.gov website as well as the CDC website, including materials in other languages. If businesses have not already done so, the DOH would also encourage them to reach out to any national associations that might have information specific to their industry.

Finally, the DOH will be hosting a Zoom meeting sometime mid-week next week to provide general information specific to businesses to facilitate safety strategies in their business. Once the details of that call are finalized, the DOH will pass that information on.
