Bismarck, ND) — COVID-19 cases are on a downward trend in North Dakota. State health officials yesterday reported 139 new cases of the coronavirus. They say the last time active cases were that low was back in July. Officials say cases peaked in mid-November and have been slowly declining since then.
Meanwhile, the North Dakota Director of Disease Control says COVID-19 testing is down in the state. Kirby Kruger says testing has dropped by about 40 percent since November. He said one reason is because the state’s risk level has been lowered, which means less testing is required.
