On August 27, 2020, South Dakota began releasing long-term care data of resident and staff cases and deaths and the number of facilities that had one case in their Department of Health's Healthcare Partner Webinar slides. South Dakota Webinar noted their data is from self-reported "touch-base calls" with facilities. The COVID Tracking Project used this data because it was the only available long-term-care information on the state’s website.
