“We hope these limitations will be short lived so that we can return to a more normal experience for our students and our fans. However, it will take a collective effort by everyone to make that happen,” the press release reads. “Please work with us to make these adjustments so further limitations may be avoided. We will continue to monitor the directives and guidelines of the NDDoH and the Western Dakota Association. We will provide more information as it becomes available.”
