Gov. Doug Burgum has extended the closure order for certain businesses until April 20th.
That includes restaurants , bars, theaters, fitness clubs and hairdressers.
They were supposed to remain closed until April 5th.
Burgum called that decision “pragmatic.”
"We're getting so much more information every day," Burgum told reporters at his daily COVID-19 briefing. "We will have a lot more information before April 20th."
Burgum said he will make a further decision about the closures by April 15th.
