    A subgroup cover of the integer lattice in two or more dimensions is a presentation of that lattice as a finite union of proper subgroups, no two of the same index. In an earlier paper, Cochrane and Myerson constructed subgroup covers in two dimensions and asked several questions about other methods of construction and about higher dimensions. We answer those questions.
