Coronavirus Closes Black Hills Church For The Season

KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) – Camp Judson, the American Baptist summer youth church camp in the Black Hills northwest of Keystone, has closed for the season because of the coronavirus.

South Dakota Dept of Health spokesman Derrick Haskins says only that “several” cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed at Camp Judson, but the First Baptist Church of Sioux Falls says in a Facebook post that 3 campers, 3 counselors, and the camp director all tested positive.

Haskins says health officials will continue to investigate the outbreak and notify people who had close contact with those who tested positive.
