In North Dakota, we prioritize helping our neighbors. That's why it's important to #MaskUpND. Wearing a mask drastically reduces the chance of spreading COVID-19 to those around you, thus helping keep our citizens safe. It's important to wear a mask even if you don't feel sick because you may be an asymptomatic carrier (someone who has COVID-19 but is not showing symptoms).
A State Health Order was signed requiring face coverings to be worn in indoor businesses and indoor public settings as well as outdoor public settings where physical distancing isn’t possible. The order, signed by interim North Dakota State Health Officer Dirk Wilke, is effective from Nov. 14 through Dec. 13.
