UPDATE, 5 p.m.
A Sioux Falls day care is temporarily closing its doors after a staff member 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.
Earlier Tuesday, the day care sent out a message to parents saying a staff member had been diagnosed with COVID-19. The message said the South Dakota Department of Health will contact parents whose children may have been exposed.
A Sioux Falls day care has sent a note to parents that a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.
Truks-N-Tykes sent a message to parents Tuesday alerting parents about the positive test.
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."
Truks-N-Tykes has three day cares 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.
Dakota News Now spoke with a staff member at Truks-N-Trykes who declined to comment, saying the day care is still in the process of working with the Department of Health.
