Grand Forks County residents still required to wear COVID-19 masks

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Grand Forks County residents will still be required to wear face coverings in many public settings even though Gov. Doug Burgum is dropping a statewide mask requirement effective Monday.

Grand Forks Health Officer Dr. Joel Walz says the order goes into effect Monday as the state mandate expires. It requires masks in indoor businesses and public settings and outdoors when physical distancing isn’t possible in public.

State health officials reported Saturday eight additional people have died from coronavirus complications, bringing the total number of deaths in North Dakota to 1,381 since the pandemic began.
