COVID-19 Risk Calculator

The South Dakota Department of Health has developed a COVID Age Calculator that is based on actual data on COVID-related hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and fatalities. If you are concerned about your personal risk, you can go to this website, input some of your basic health information (age, gender, weight, underlying health conditions, etc.) and the tool will calculate your risk. For healthy people, the risk of surviving is 99.5% or higher.
