PIERRE, S.D. (KCAU) – On Tuesday, Governor Kristi Noem signed an executive order to fight the spread of COVID-19 in South Dakota.
The executive order suspends the following regulations:
- The regulatory provision governing teacher evaluations.
- The requirements that a public body conducting a meeting by teleconference must provide a physical location for the public to listen and participate and that require a bid to be opened in the physical presence of a witness.
- The statutory provision requiring the Department of Corrections to impose certain sanctions for parole violations regarding a positive urinalysis test for a controlled substance.
The Governor’s office said the suspension of the regulation concerning urinalysis tests will allow the Department of Corrections to institute a policy in the best interests of the health and safety of the state’s institutions and inmates.
