9/25/20 10 p.m. UPDATE: As of 10:00 p.m. Friday, wording of the letter on the Orange City Area Health System’s website changed. The paragraph that once said hospitals in Sioux Falls and Sioux City were at “full capacity” now reads: “Some of the more acute patients who would typically be transferred to larger hospitals (in Sioux Falls and Sioux City) are being cared for locally due to increased demand. Sioux Falls-area hospitals have assured Sioux County health systems that they continue to accept critical COVID-19 patients, and it is well within their ability to do so.” Dakota News Now obtained a screenshot of the article before the change was made (see below.)
