Rosebud president: Tribal members must quarantine after attending Sturgis Rally

Rosebud tribal members must self-quarantine for 14 days after returning from the Sturgis Rally to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on the reservation, Rosebud President Rodney Bordeaux said. Thousands of bikers from around the country began arriving in Sturgis on Friday for the 10-day 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and many in attendance have expressed defiance at the restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
