Third case of COVID reported, drive-through testing underway

Another case of the novel coronavirus was confirmed on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation last Friday, June 5, bringing the total number of positive cases in Dewey and Ziebach counties to three. At least one of those patients has now fully recovered from the illness.

During his daily radio update on Friday, CRST Chairman Harold Frazier said the latest COVID-19 patient is recovering at home and doing well. He added tribal health officials were also conducting contact tracing and it was highly likely that some people who had contact with the patient prior to that person being diagnosed will be placed in quarantine as well. Frazier said the patient contracted the illness outside the reservation boundaries.
