Responsible Patron Checklist

How can you be a responsible patron?


The City of Sioux Falls needs your help to restart our economy.  The COVID-19 virus remains active within our community; however, hospitalizations remain low which allows for the partial reopening of our stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues.


Our business owners are working hard to do their part and now I need you to do yours.  By taking personal responsibility for your behavior, you can keep our companies open by following the My Sioux Falls Checklist found below.  The success of our businesses and our ability to move to the next level is totally dependent on everyone working together to control the spread of the Coronavirus.


Thank you for your commitment to our city and to the One Sioux Falls mindset.  We will get through this together!


Best Regards,

Paul TenHaken, Mayor, City of Sioux Falls
