Back in early August the governor of South Dakota tried to lure businesses to set up in her state because they did not have all of the restrictions other states had in place for COVID-19.
Commissioner Chilcott throws statistics around comparing Ravalli County to other counties telling us how much safer we are than other places.
You just can't fix stupid. Look where South Dakota is now and look at the rising cases in Ravalli County. South Dakota and Montana are the highest per capita with positive cases. I prefer to follow the guidelines of experts in the medical profession instead of a governor or a county commissioner. How disheartening and egotistical that these elected officials don't do the same!
