The Coronavirus is impacting our community.  We all know we have community spread in North Dakota, and as our region’s coronavirus threat level rises, local government response and action will also escalate. In an effort to “flatten the curve,” and prioritize the health and safety of our community, Bowman County has taking proactive steps. We have temporarily restructured the way we are conducting business at the Courthouse and County/City shop. Our county employees will continue to provide all regular services to the public, and doing our part by practicing social distancing.  Customers are asked to use the phone, e-mail, or a drop-boxes the courthouse when possible. But if you need access to county offices, call to schedule an appointment and our staff will accommodate you.
