Experience Sioux Falls continues to monitor the current coronavirus pandemic and the impact it is having on the Sioux Falls visitor industry.
We will follow the leadership set forth by Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken, Governor Kristi Noem, Secretary of Tourism Jim Hagen, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) throughout these unprecedented times.
The U.S. Travel Association has put together a new guide for "Travel in the New Normal" promoting the health and safety of all travelers. It was developed based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and White House guidelines: “Opening Up America Again“ and in consultation with public health experts. View it here.
The CDC recommends certain actions for the preparation and mitigation of community transmission of COVID-19, including, but not limited to, social distancing measures and restricting the size of gatherings. With more than two weeks of a downward projectory in COVID-19 cases in Sioux Falls, City Council members voted in favor of removing COVID-19 business restrictions, effective May 29th. However, we encourage you to contact each business prior to your travels to receive information regarding any closures, cancellations, or restrictions that they have in place.
For more information on COVID-19 please utilize the following resources:
- City of Sioux Falls - COVID-19
