ND Smart Restart Update

COVID-19 Risk Level Change-InstaGovernor Burgum has increased the COVID-19 Risk Level for Williams County to “Orange” (high risk), effective tomorrow, October 16, at 5pm. This is a change from the previous risk level of "Yellow" (moderate).

With the announced changes to the Smart Restart Protocols, there are NO mandated business closures in the Orange Category.

However, this change in risk level is an important reminder to practice:

  • social distancing,
  • wearing a mask in public when social distancing is not possible and at any City Commission meetings,
  • avoiding large gatherings,
  • and washing your hands frequently.
