July 8, 2020

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has reimposed some regulations that were loosened during the early weeks of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Republican governor signed an executive order Tuesday rescinding previous orders she signed as part of South Dakota’s COVID-19 response.

Noem’s new order keeps a state of emergency in place for purposes of federal coronavirus funding.

Under Noem’s new executive order, South Dakotans whose driver’s licenses, permits and nondriver’s identification cards expired have until Dec. 30 to renew them.

Anyone who was unable to take care of titling and registration of motor vehicles, manufactured homes and boats while county buildings were closed needs to take care of it by Aug. 1, under Noem’s new order.
