South Dakota takes its chances on coronavirus

SIOUX FALLS – Inside Jokerz Casino, one of many small gambling storefronts dotting this South Dakota city, Yvonne Jones sat before an electronic machine betting a dollar at a time.

It was a rare respite from thoughts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Jones, who lives alone, was grateful. "This is more or less my outing," she said, noting that she kept hand sanitizer nearby. "If I didn't feel safe, I wouldn't be here."
