Local businesses and locations have announced closures for the week because of the threat of the Coronavirus in North Dakota.

As of Sunday when the state announced the closure of all schools in the state, 100 people had been tested for the virus and 95 came back negative. The results of four others were pending.

In the area there are several businesses and locations, which have decided to close because of the emergency pronouncements by the state over the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Among the locations are:

All schools in Bowman County, Slope County and the rest of North Dakota

Gov. Doug Burgum announced the closure of all schools in the state Sunday evening. That includes Marmarth School in Slope County, as well as the Bowman County School District schools, and in Scranton.

Students involved in school meal programs should contact the schools for the arrangements, which are being made.

Bowman County High School has a sign posted saying that the campus will be closed until March 20 as a result of the governor’s executive order. The school is scheduled to reopen March 23. The sign also recommends people to check its website and social media pages for more information or updates.

ABLE Inc. Repeat Outlet

They also will not be taking in cans this week either unless special arrangements are made. Any questions or concerns, or special arrangements to be made please call us at 701-523-5844

Bowman County Regional Library

The Bowman Regional Library will be closed through Sunday (March 22). All library materials will be renewed. Customers are asked to refrain from using the book return and keep the materials they have checked out.

Bowman Parks and Recreation Department

The Parks and Recreation center is also closed for the week.

Pioneer Trails Regional Museum

A sign posted on the front door says that out of an abundance of caution, Pioneer Trail Regional Museum will be closed to the public until further notice. “We apologize for the inconvenience, but the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors is of utmost importance to us,” the sign said.

Cedar Chest

Closed until further notice.

As the Bowman County Commissioners and City of Bowman Commissioners release new information, it will be placed on the website.
