Be Inspired. Be Safe.
South Dakota is ready and waiting to welcome you to our Great Faces and Great Places. Wide-open spaces and outdoor attractions provide ideal opportunities for safe & accessible travel.
South Dakota does not have any travel restrictions in place, but the health & safety of our visitors, residents, and tourism businesses is our top priority. The South Dakota tourism industry has implemented hygiene, health, and safety protocols to keep you and your families safe while you are here.
EVENT CANCELLATIONS AND TOURISM BUSINESS DISRUPTIONS
Keeping safety in mind, businesses and events continue to make decisions about their operations. While many are open, some businesses are operating under special hours while others are temporarily closed. Some events have been canceled, postponed or are taking place with restrictions.
Please make sure to double-check with any businesses and events before visiting. Some businesses, especially ones in the western region, close for the winter months. Click on the region link below to find regional lists with the most current information we have. Then click on the business or event name to link off to their website or Facebook page.
TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS AND ROAD CLOSURES
Some trip routes through tribal lands may be closed and alternatives needed. Check SafeTravelUsa.com/SD or call 5-1-1 for up-to-date road information. In addition, the Department of Tourism created a document with access to maps of documented tribal checkpoints and visitor information. (The number of checkpoint locations may change at any time. We will update this document as we receive information.)
if you have any questions or concerns about your trip, we encourage you to contact our department or the city/place to which you are heading in South Dakota. You can also visit COVID.SD.gov for more information about COVID-19 in South Dakota. Safe travels!
