Nearly 130 people associated with a wind turbine plant in North Dakota have tested positive for COVID-19.
Officials tested 424 people last week in drive-thru screenings at LM Wind Power. About 128 employees, associates and family members tested positive. Next, local health officials and the National Guard will test up to 800 more "close contacts."
The hot spot at LM accounts for nearly 20% of the state's total confirmed cases. Most of the people infected by the virus in North Dakota range from 30 to 39 years old.
As of Tuesday, 15,589 North Dakota residents had been tested. According to the AP, about 14,910 tests came back negative.
