North Dakota Governor Boosts COVID-19 Measures for Elderly

September 24, 2020

FARGO, N.D. — North Dakota’s governor has directed health officials to put long-term care residents and workers at the head of the line for coronavirus testing.

Gov. Doug Burgum outlined the change Wednesday as North Dakota wrestles with one of the nation’s fastest rates of per capita case growth.

North Dakota has reported 26 deaths in the last seven days, with 19 of them in a hot spot of the two counties that include the capital of Bismarck. Most of those were in a single long-term care facility that Burgum did not name.

The governor says the state will try to return test results for long-term facilities residents and workers within 24 hours, and make a priority of contact tracing and follow-up in those facilities.
