SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The South Dakota Health Department is making syphilis testing more accessible.

The agency is partnering with the Union Gospel Mission in Sioux Falls to bring syphilis testing to people without homes or those who are low-income.

This comes after the DOH reported that syphilis is up 1877% in South Dakota, with 257 cases reported so far this year. That’s compared to the 5-year median of 13 cases.

If you aren’t in the Sioux Falls area, there are testing sites across the state
