Gov. Burgum Ready to “Dial Up a Little Risk” With North Dakotans’ Health

BISMARCK, ND — Gov. Burgum announced today businesses previously closed by his executive order as a result of the covid-19 pandemic would be able to re-open this weekend under certain criteria he will announce tomorrow. During the press conference he said North Dakota was read to “dial up a little risk.”

Dem-NPL Chairwoman Kylie Oversen said:

“The governor said today he’s fine taking greater risks with the health of North Dakotans, and we hope people don’t get sick or die as a result. We’re concerned he’s caving to orders from Washington and those in his party who have publicly refused to follow his executive order any longer. We will hold judgment until the new rules and guidelines are announced.”
