What is a hot spot and why avoid it?
Individuals who travel to hotspots 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 hotspot 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. Data from the Great Plains Tribal Epidemiology Center.
Travel from hotspots off the reservation by non-residents will be turned around at checkpoints unless you have an essential reason to travel on the Reservation.
This page is set up to inform reservation residents of the actions of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe regarding the tribe’s response to the COVID-19 spread.
