North Dakotans Who Visit MN Required to Quarantine for Two Weeks
According to the North Dakota government, any North Dakota resident who visits Minnesota and then returns to their state must now self-quarantine for two weeks.
That's per new travel quarantine orders, which says "all individuals traveling back to North Dakota from international locations and states in the U.S. that have been classified as having widespread disease by the CDC...must quarantine immediately upon reentry to the state of North Dakota and for a period of 14 days."
Essential critical infrastructure workers include staffing operations centers, maintaining and repairing critical infrastructure, operating call centers, working construction, and performing operational functions, among others as defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. A more extensive list can be viewed here.
As of Wednesday, April 8 the list of U.S. states classified as having widespread disease by the CDC includes 38 of the 50 states. Nearby neighboring states South Dakota and Nebraska are not yet on the list.
In addition to self-quarantining for the required 14 days, any North Dakotan who reenters the state from Minnesota is encouraged to fill out a travel form to receive information on how to monitor for symptoms. Failure to adhere to travel quarantine orders can result in 30 days imprisonment and/or up to $1500 fine.
As of Wednesday, April 8 North Dakota has had 237 confirmed cases of COVID-19, per WorldOfMeters.info.
