Message from Governor Burgum
Citizens of North Dakota,
Thank you for your commitment to helping your fellow North Dakotans through the COVID-19 pandemic. Working together with a data-driven approach, our state has relied on personal responsibility and a balanced approach to protect the most vulnerable, preserve hospital capacity, and keep our schools and economy open.
Now, with the widespread availability of safe and effective vaccines, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. North Dakota ranks among the nation’s leaders in vaccine administration. We are grateful to everyone giving and receiving the vaccine to protect themselves, their loved ones and their communities.
As we continue to navigate this unprecedented time, we encourage citizens to visit NDResponse.gov or www.health.nd.gov for the most comprehensive data and up-to-date information on how Team ND is addressing this pandemic through a whole-of-government, whole-of-community approach.
We are deeply grateful for our health care workers, long-term care staff, educators, businesses, local public health units, legislators, city and county leaders, federal partners and Team ND members in the Department of Health and other state agencies who have worked together and tirelessly to save lives and livelihoods.
