Thank you for your diligent efforts to keep your employees and workplace safe from COVID-19.  As we continue to navigate the pandemic, the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) wants to help your business become independent in assisting your employees with COVID-19 quarantine and isolation guidance.

The NDDoH has moved away from contacting businesses of positive cases and with providing return to work letters for employees following COVID-19 isolation.

As the state shifts toward an endemic response, businesses are encouraged to accept results of at-home or OTC tests.

Furthermore, businesses are encouraged to utilize multiple prevention and screening tools, such as vaccination and at-home or over the counter testing, to keep the workplace healthy. Being up to date on COVID-19 vaccine gives you and your employees an added layer of protection against COVID-19 and may also protect your friends and loved ones. At-home or over the counter tests are an important tool in early identification and isolation of positive cases.

We have provided the following documents to assist you in this transition:
