North Dakota sees 125 new COVID-19 cases, no new deaths
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota reported an additional 125 new COVID-19 infections on Saturday and zero new deaths, as the state is seeing some loosened restrictions on business capacities.
Overall, more than 94,000 people have been infected with COVID-19 and more than 1,300 have died in North Dakota since the pandemic began. The new figures come a day after the state lowered its risk assessment from high risk to moderate risk.
The state had initially raised its risk assessment in early November, as cases of COVID-19 were surging. But numbers began decreasing after a statewide mask mandate and business restrictions were implemented.
