Grand Forks County sees record COVID-19 numbers in one day
Grand Forks County is breaking the record for the most positive COVID-19 cases in a North Dakota county today with 336 positive test results Friday.
This is the first time a county has had more than 300 in one day, since the pandemic started.
Grand Forks Public Health Director Debbie Swanson says a large testing event Tuesday may be where the spike came from.
Grand Forks is holding a county commission meeting Monday, Nov. 9, to talk about what they need to do in order to protect the community.
"It is very concerning when you have over 300 in one day. It will be really hard for our contact tracers to keep up with that," Swanson said.
Ward County also topped 300 new coronavirus cases Friday with 310.
