The state of North Dakota has activated what’s being called the state’s Workforce Coordination Center.
"It's there to serve emergency workforce needs, in support of the Coronavirus fight," Gov. Doug Burgum said at a COVID-19 briefing. "It's lifeline services for industries and agencies."
Burgum told reporters this will cover people who would be willing to help in a number of sectors, and in a number of jobs -- from public health workers, to law enforcement, child care, food and agriculture.
Some of the positions are volunteer, others are paid.
