Dear Campus Community,

We are pleased to report that the number of current active COVID-19 cases on campus has remained stable over the past week. As noted on the USD COVID-19 Dashboard, USD reported 23 current active cases today – a significant decrease from three weeks ago.

As we move forward with our goal of remaining together on campus until Thanksgiving, we must continue to follow safe practices to protect ourselves and others. Wearing face coverings continues to be a critical component of our efforts to #ProtectThePack; as such, the face coverings policy that was established earlier this year has been extended by the South Dakota Board of Regents. In accordance with this decision, USD will continue to require face coverings in indoor, public spaces on campus.

Thank you for wearing face coverings, washing your hands regularly, maintaining distance from others when possible and making safe decisions. Please visit to access resources, and contact us at to self-report or ask questions about USD’s response to the pandemic.
