VALLEY CITY, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The following is a message from Valley City Mayor Dave Carlsurd.
“The Corona Virus is ravaging our nation. Our Barnes County positives have increased 137 in the last three days.
Governor Burgum and the State Health Officer issued four mitigation orders Friday evening: A Face Covering Order where we cannot socially distance and violation carries a penalty of infraction. Adjusted bar, restaurant and food service venues.
Addressed Tiered Capacity for large gatherings and events. Pauses all school, community, association and club sports until December 14th.
People, we have to “come together” if we are to effectively battle the virus. We must have compassion and respect for our family, friends, co-workers and other citizens to slow the spread. Remember the virus does not differentiate between family or friends, it will transmit through all contacts regardless of the relationship. So unless we are with someone from our own household and cannot social distance, Mask-UP.”
The City County Health District Office has Mask-Up Kits with signage available for use in your building(s). Please call City County Health at 845-8518.
Mayor of Valley City
