Governor to lift the last COVID executive orders
By Neal A. Shipman
As North Dakota shifts its COVID-19 focus to vaccination, Gov. Doug Burgum has announced that he will be lifting the state’s emergency declaration on Friday, April 30.
“Lifting this emergency declaration on April 30, recognizes the tremendous progress our state has made in protecting the most vulnerable, preserving hospital capacity and making safe, effective vaccines available to every eligible North Dakotan,” stated Burgum. “Nearly 70 percent of North Dakotans ages 65 years and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 64 percent are fully vaccinated, including over 90 percent of long-term care residents. Our vaccination efforts remain a top priority as another wave of COVID-19 continues to spread across the country and world.”
