North Dakota reports 2 COVID-19 deaths, 90 new cases

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota health officials have reported two more deaths from COVID-19, along with 90 new cases as the state experiences a rise in cases over the last two weeks.

The increase in cases comes as the state makes mass testing available while it lifts state-mandated business closures. The positivity rate for tests has remained under 5%, an indicator that the state is aggressively testing for coronavirus.

Still, at least two businesses in Bismark temporarily shut down again, the Bismarck Tribune reported. The businesses are testing their employees for COVID-19.
