SD WIC: COVID-19 Updates

Updated May 17, 2021:

The South Dakota WIC program continues to keep the safety of our participants and staff as top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

WIC participants will be asked to follow these safety guidelines when coming to a WIC appointment:

  • Everyone ages 2 and older must wear a mask.
  • Only one adult should come with an infant or child.   
  • Only bring the child/children needed for the appointment. When possible, leave the other children at home.
  • Call the WIC clinic when you arrive in the parking lot. Staff will let you know when you can come in to start your appointment.
  • Everyone will receive a health screening at the door. Staff will take everyone’s temperature and ask questions about COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Staff will wear a mask and use protective equipment at all times during the appointment.

Please call your local WIC office with any questions or concerns. sdwic.org/locations/
