A new COVID-19 task force is being organized in Burleigh and Morton Counties.
This follows a spike in reported cases in that area.
Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health director Renae Moch told reporters the biggest increase in the infection rate in the two counties is among people in their 20s and 30s.
"Obviously, they're the individuals out in the community, who are more active, working, maybe with front-line jobs, doing service type positions," Moch said.
Moch said there's also a concern about students going back to college this fall.
