North Dakota announced a statewide mask mandate as the state sees record breaking coronavirus numbers. Gov. Doug Burgum’s (R) office released a list of health safety measures Friday, which seek to curb the rising number of those infected with COVID-19.

Face- coverings will now be required indoors for places of businesses and public areas as well as outdoor sections where social distancing isn’t possible. The order excludes those under the age of five and permits religious services to be held without masks.

The Republican governor urged North Dakotans to behave responsibilit. and protect each other.

The mandate come in preparation for the holiday season, which officials warn may see another wave of the virus.

Health experts are monitoring the state’s handling of the virus and may issue more safety regulations if conditions worsen or if more deaths are reported.
