North Dakota Businesses Prepare for Border Reopening

(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota businesses are preparing for a rush of visitors when the border reopens for non-essential travel Monday. State Commerce Department officials say they’ve seen a sharp increase in website traffic from Canada since the federal government announced non-essential travel over the border can resume. The North Dakota economy has suffered since the border was closed at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. State officials estimate the pandemic has cost North Dakota almost 200-million dollars in lost visitor spending.
