Coronavirus cases continue to increase in North Dakota

FARGO, N.D. (KFGO-AM) — The number of cases of coronavirus continued to increase in North Dakota Friday, with health officials announcing a 20th case involving a woman in her 30s who had been traveling.

The increase in cases was expected as more testing is done on individuals.

Gov. Doug Burgum has ordered all bars, restaurants, health clubs, movie theaters and other large-scale venues to close to patrons, while still allowing  offsite food and beverage service.

Burgum is also keeping K-12 schools closed until further notice so districts can map out plans to resume classes remotely.
