North Dakota’s top health official on Monday lifted the state’s 14-day quarantine order for people returning from international travel.
Interim State Health Officer Dr. Paul Mariani said the decision follows the recommendation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“It’s important for North Dakotans to remember that individual countries may have their own restrictions that impact travel,” he said in a statement. “Check with your destination’s Ministry of Health for the most up-to-date information.”
The travel quarantine order was issued in April and amended twice, most recently in July.
The U.S.-Canada border remains closed to nonessential travel due to the pandemic.
