The Oglala Sioux Tribe says two families displaced by a rodent-borne virus in their homes have been moved into new trailers.
Andre Janis with the tribe's Home Improvement Program says in a news release that the families recently moved into the new trailers following the discovery of the hantavirus at their old trailers in June. A young tribal member died when she contacted the illness, which was the first known case of hantavirus on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
The tribe says the FEMA trailers were transported from Minot, North Dakota. The families had been staying at the tribe's Prairie Wind Casino hotel while they waited for the trailers.
The three-bedroom trailers are furnished and designed for long-term occupancy.
