As fewer people travel because of the coronavirus outbreak, Herald reporter Adam Kurtz will speak to officials with the Grand Forks International Airport about how boarding numbers are being affected. The director of Grand Forks International Airport is expecting decreased passenger numbers due to the evolving situation surrounding the coronavirus.

In North Dakota, there are zero confirmed cases of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the virus. There are five confirmed cases in Minnesota.
Herald reporter Pamela Knudson will layout more about the Grand Forks School Board voting, at its recent regular meeting, to permit the school district to call for bids for the public sale of two types of bonds which will mean substantial interest savings for the district over the next 15 years.
With the sale of these bonds, the district will save between $460,000 and $500,000 in interest, “because interest rates have dropped so dramatically,” said Scott Berge, business manager for Grand Forks Public Schools.
Thursday morning, Herald reporter Hannah Shirley will listen in to the latest flood outlook from the National Weather Service.
