Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota has risen to national prominence for her handling of COVID-19. She is the only governor that did not lock down her state.
While harsh lockdowns were pushed early this year to help ‘flatten the curve’ Noem never shut down the state. While states such as New York and New Jersey nearly overwhelmed the hospitals, South Dakota has not has the 40th lowest number of cases and the 39th lowest deaths per 100k people.
Governor Noem has just released a video to explain social distancing in her state. As a hunter, I love it!
