    I agree with you but the leaders down here are not that smart. Yet they want to open the schools

    Huge, foolish mistake': Sturgis residents split over giant bike rally as coronavirus cases rise
    More than 250,000 people are expected to attend the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in western South Dakota, even as the state sees a spike in COVID-19 cases.

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Sturgis is on. The message has been broadcast across social media as South Dakota, which has seen an uptick in coronavirus infections in recent weeks, braces to host hundreds of thousands of bikers for the 80th edition of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

    More than 250,000 people are expected to rumble through western South Dakota, seeking the freedom of cruising the boundless landscapes in a state that has skipped lockdowns. The Aug. 7 to 16 event, which could be the biggest anywhere so far during the pandemic, will offer businesses that depend on the rally a chance to make up for losses caused by the coronavirus. But for many in Sturgis, a city of about 7,000, the brimming bars and bacchanalia will not be welcome during a pandemic.

    Though only about half the usual number of people are expected at this year's event, residents were split as the city weighed its options. Many worried that the rally would cause an unmanageable outbreak of COVID-19.

    “This is a huge, foolish mistake to make to host the rally this year," Sturgis resident Lynelle Chapman told city counselors at a June meeting. “The government of Sturgis needs to care most for its citizens.”

    It is a very big mistake. People don't use common sense anymore.

    The governor of Ms finally said it is mandatory to wear a mask. It took him long enough to make up his mind.

    Wow Pete-
    Aren't masks required there? Are there lockdowns for businesses and people to stay home? Awful numbers for sure!

    Yes all pretty much all places with a drive thru or take out remained open here- just started opening indoor dining- limited seating.
    Bars opened too as long as they serve food, but they have been getting too crowded, so limiting the number of people there too.
    People can remove their masks to eat- otherwise everyone is wearing one.
    All stores- must have a mask on and they have masks, hand sanitizer and wipes for the carts- Kohls dressing rooms were closed.
    There are store security at the door- just in case- big guys too. Some trouble here with people complying with the rules, hence the security.

    Does it seem like it's slowing down a little from the last shown pace??
