MINOT, N.D. - Minot, Ward County, and health leaders came together to present new information on how they will deal with the coronavirus going forward.

Lisa Clute with First District Health said there is a new protocol from the North Dakota Department of Health on who can be tested for COVID-19.

“Clinical features, and this is the thing that has changed a little bit, fever or two of the following signs and symptoms of respiratory illness with new or worsening onset and that's: cough shortness of breath sore throat chills and fatigue,” Clute said.

The group of local leaders plan to hold a press conference once a week to discuss the local response to COVID-19 until there is no longer a need to hold them.
