Infection numbers from Black Hills youth camp continue to rise


Associated Press - August 4, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Department of Health says the number of confirmed coronavirus cases at a Christian youth summer camp in the Black Hills has grown to 96.

Health officials said Monday that 93 South Dakota residents and three out-of-state residents have COVID-19 after attending Camp Judson near Keystone. The camp shut down several weeks ago.

State epidemiologist Joshua Clayton said 328 people had been at the camp. He said 44 of the 93 South Dakota cases have recovered, the Rapid City Journal reported.

Clayton said the average age among the church camp’s cases is 15 years old, with some as young as 5 to 9 and as old as 70 to 74 becoming infected. Of the South Dakota cases, 59 were women and 34 were men. None have been hospitalized, he said.

The Department of Health reported 65 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases in South Dakota on Monday.

As of Monday, there are 9,020 total confirmed COVID-19 cases in South Dakota since the pandemic began and 135 deaths.
