Governor: North Dakota COVID-19 cases up to 33

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum says the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state has risen to 33.

Burgum says the latest cases involve a woman in her 30s in Burleigh County who had close contact with a person infected with the coronavirus and a man in his 70s from Walsh County whose case is under investigation.

The governor said Monday he just learned of a third case. While North Dakota has had a relatively low increase in cases, Burgum says North Dakotans should not become complacent.

He also says while North Dakotans should maintain physical distance to slow the spread of the disease, they still should stay socially connected for their mental health.
