      • South Dakota dismisses 'elite class of so-called experts,' carries on with state fair after Sturgis rally fueled COVID-19 surge


        In the weeks following those events, South Dakota has emerged as a virus hotbed, according to data analysis. State and national health experts say the rise in cases is likely fueled by a combination of factors, including school reopenings, small gatherings and major events.

        Those larger events have been made possible by South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem's steadfast resistance to restrictive measures aimed at slowing the spread of the virus. She has discouraged schools from requiring masks, instead promoting hand-washing as the best way to prevent infections, and railed against an "elite class of so-called experts" whose opinions impact individuals' liberties.

        But as cases surge in the state, public health officials are grappling with the impact of the Sturgis rally, which gained national attention as one of the largest events to be held since the onset of the pandemic.

                  • Meanwhile....in stupid....

                    Three-time Olympic volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings is facing a wave of criticism after she said she went to the grocery store without a mask.

                    Jennings, who is one of the most dominant volleyball players to ever compete, posted on Instagram that she went shopping without a face covering and called it "a little exercise in being brave."

                    "I went shopping without a mask on & this is why," Jennings wrote on Instagram. "I read a quote the other day that shook me - - THIS HAS NOT BEEN ENFORCED, IT'S BEEN CONSENTED TO."

                    Jennings said that statement "woke me up," and that she wanted to stand up for her rights and freedoms without being reckless or putting others in danger.

                            A group of students knew they had covid-19. They hosted a party over Labor Day anyway.

                            The officer asked whether he was supposed to be quarantining, to which the student replied that he was at his house and that everyone who lives in the house also tested positive for covid-19.

                            “But you have other people here, and you’re positive for covid? You see the problem?” the officer said.

                            The student said that some of the visitors had also tested positive.

                            The officer sighed. “You’re not quarantining if you’re mixing with other people,” he said.

                            • South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is using COVID-19 relief funds to pay for a $5 million tourism ad campaign, despite a surge in coronavirus cases following the Sturgis motorcycle rally
                              • South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is going to use $5 million in coronavirus relief funds on a tourism ad campaign.
                              • South Dakota experienced a spike in COVID-19 cases following last month's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally which researchers believe might be responsible for more than 19% of all new US cases.
                              • The state now ranks second in the country for new cases per capita over the last two weeks, with 439 new cases per 100,000 people, but Noem is actively still encouraging people to visit.
