What is a hot spot and why avoid it?

Individuals who travel to hot spots are at greater risk of getting COVID-19. Residents are recommended to only travel for essential reasons and quarantine for 10 days upon their return . Contact the Covid-19 Hotline: 605-964-0563 for more information. Counties in blue on this map have been designated as hot spots by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. A hot spot is a county with a 7-day positivity rate greater than 5%. 7-day positivity is the percent of tests that were positive in the last 7 days.

Travel from Hotspots off the reservation by non-residents will be turned around at checkpoints unless you have essential reason to travel on the Reservation.
