SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota lawmaker says she will be participating in the upcoming legislative session remotely until she receives a vaccine for COVID-19.
Rep. Linda Duba, a Sioux Falls Democrat, informed legislative leadership she will stay away from the Capitol building during the upcoming legislative session out of concern for her health.
The 64-year-old lawmaker says she will not attend meetings in-person until she receives two doses of a vaccine.
The Legislature is set to convene in Pierre on Jan. 12 for a two-month session but rules and protocols for the session have not yet been set.
