An Executive Order was enacted by Governor Burgum on Friday, November 13. Gov. Burgum announced several mitigation measures aimed at slowing the accelerating spread of COVID-19 in North Dakota in order to protect the vulnerable, ensure hospital capacity and keep schools and the economy open.
On November 17 the Bismarck Board of City Commissioners had a special meeting and rescinded the city’s Pandemic Mitigation Strategy to align with the Governor’s new state orders.
YourDakota was launched earlier this year to provide the community with information regarding updated business hours, dine-in and/or curbside service available and any COVID precautions in place at those businesses. In an ever changing environment, consumers are looking for the most up-to-date information possible when making decisions as to where to shop or dine. The best part is that YourDakota is free to list and free to view so that all businesses, including Downtowners Association Members, can update their information for the public to see.
