FARGO — The West Acres Regional Shopping Center has extended its temporary closure to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the illness caused by coronavirus.

The mall announced it tentatively plans to reopen on Wednesday, April 8. West Acres had originally planned on closing from March 19 to March 31.

The mall had initially closed food court seating and changed its hours in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The move came after North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum recommended the closure of community gathering spaces to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

In its statement on the extended closure, West Acres said it will continue to provide weekly updates on its plans.
