South Dakota used some innovative approaches to promote awareness of Project Firstline and was honored to be recognized by the CDC nationally for our communications strategies!  

Communicating our message was important because COVID-19 won’t be the last threat. As new infectious diseases emerge, we need to be ready.  We need to arm our frontline workers with education and training.  Keeping our frontline safe keeps ALL of us safe.

​Our focus is on training as many frontline workers in South Dakota as possible in infection control and providing access to the latest science and the resources they need. We will make training relevant and applicable for every setting and skill level, ranging from simple to complex. Methods and channels for effective education will be customized based on the needs within the jurisdiction.
