Governor Tim Walz disagrees with Governor Doug Burgum’s office saying it’s ok for North Dakotans to go to their lake cabins in Minnesota.

Walz says it’s not wise for anyone to be traveling right now. He adds he wouldn’t ask Minnesotans to travel to North Dakota or elsewhere.

Walz says since there’s no federal stay at home order, it’s pitting states against one another.

“My folks up north in Minnesota are concerned about people moving. We think it’s best to be sheltered close to home. We said we can go outside, but not to travel somewhere and get others involved in this,” Walz explained.

Burgum tweeted after calling Walz, “For the health and safety of our citizens, they should avoid all nonessential travel. Stay home, stay healthy, and stay connected.”
