City of West Fargo extends closures and work-from-home directive until Friday, May 1


After reviewing the COVID-19 pandemic conditions, the City of West Fargo administration has decided to extend closure of all public buildings and the work-from-home directive for employees until Friday, May 1, 2020. This means the West Fargo City Hall, West Fargo Public Library, West Fargo Police Department, West Fargo Fire Department stations, Public Works Department and Sanitation Department are closed to the public.

During this closure, essential services will remain in operation, including emergency services, sanitation, streets, sewer and water maintenance, and utility billing, but changes may be in place to accommodate the work-from-home directive and social distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH). Because the virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person, they recommend avoiding groups of 10 or more and maintaining distance from others when possible.
