(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum says the state is no longer in "crisis mode" when it comes to managing and responding to Covid-19.  He made the comment while appearing on "What's on Your Mind" with Flag Family Radio's Scott Hennen.

"We are in management mode.  I mean we are handling this thing, the serious issue that it is.  But businesses are all open.  Schools are all open. We're focusing our time on fighting the Biden Administration and also driving a record amount of economic development with billions of dollars of new value added energy and value added agriculture coming to North Dakota," said Burgum. 

Burgum went on to say the state health department has the responsibility to make sure they continue to get information out so people make choices about how to protect themselves and protect their vulnerable family members.
