He says as of tomorrow at 5pm, the risk level of 21 counties will officially advance.
Burgum says five counties will be upgraded from the “new normal” category.
"Cavalier, Griggs, Pierce, Ransom and Steele. Those are all moving up to the 'green,' or low risk level."
Eight counties are being upgraded from the low risk level to the moderate risk level.
