Department of Health provides SDSU with testing equipment

BROOKINGS, S.D. (KJJQ) – An important facet of students returning to South Dakota State University will be COVID-19 testing availability.

SDSU President Barry Dunn says the South Dakota Department of health has provided the university with testing equipment.

Dunn says Brookings Health System, Sanford and Avera are great partners and they’re as ready as they can be.

He says the plan is to test students who have symptoms.

They also have rooms ready for students who are ill or need to self-isolate.
