Washington Post: Covid cases are linked to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, but the full impact may never be known

Washington Post: Covid cases are linked to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, but the full impact may never be known. “As hundreds of thousands flocked to rural South Dakota for a motorcycle rally [in August], sparking fears of a coronavirus superspreader event, photos captured people crowding the streets without masks and packing local businesses in the city of Sturgis — including a bar on Main Street, One-Eyed Jack’s Saloon. Now state health officials say a person who visited One-Eyed Jack’s for about five hours has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. So has an employee of the tattoo shop inside the bar who worked there from last Thursday through Monday. Both could have transmitted the virus to others at the time.”
