Dakota News Now is reporting that Truks-N-Tykes in Sioux Falls is temporarily closing its doors after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The daycare sent out a note to parents on Tuesday stating that a staff member had tested positive for COVID-19. Truks-N-Tykes will temporarily close at the end of the day Tuesday, an employee tells Dakota News Now. They plan to reopen on April 27.

A copy of the message obtained by Dakota News Now said the staff member worked in the two-year-old room on Friday. The South Dakota Department of Health is reaching out to families of children who were in that room. The message also asked parents who had a child in that room Friday to "pick them up immediately."

The message also stated that the South Dakota Department of Health will contact parents whose children may have been exposed.

Truks-N-Tykes has three daycares around the Sioux Falls area. The message was sent from Trucks-N-Trykes 2, which is located on S. MacArthur Lane near 57th Street and Cliff Avenue.
