Phase II Restart Guidance (updated November, 2020)


Approved June 12, 2020 by the President’s COVID Working Group. Effective June 15, 2020

Governor Burgum has moved the state to the Green Level (Low Risk) Category. However, Cass County still has widespread community spread of COVID-19. Therefore, Ag Affairs will be moving to a phased reopening approach which will allow more activities to occur in geographic areas outside of Cass County while continuing with appropriate restrictions in place for Cass County and the Main Station.
