South Dakota governor shuns stay-at-home order as coronavirus cases climb

The number of infections in South Dakota has increased three-fold in a week to more than 1,000 but the state’s Gov. Kristi Noem reiterated that she won’t be ordering a stay-at- home. The state saw its infection numbers spike following an outbreak at a pork processing plant in Sioux Falls where about 500 employees tested positive. Their family members, about 120 people, have also tested positive.

It is encouraging to see a leader not given into mob mentality. I can only hope she keeps it up and holds strong.

I am liking this governor. We need to migrate to a county by county approach. I live in a rural county I n New Jersey (yes they exist). We have very few cases, let alone deaths. My county should not be closed. This monolithic approach is bafflingly obtuse.

She is correct as are most of the R governors. If your kid gets the flu you don't quarantine the others, just the one with the flu.

SD is projected to have fewer than 200 deaths, even with their lack of the silly "stay home" nonsense. Seems like she's doing fine.

Mob mentality? You mean a rational idea to curb the spread of a disease.
