Burgum Terminates Several COVID-Related Orders
North Dakota Ag Connection - 02/23/2021

Gov. Doug Burgum Monday signed an executive order terminating several prior executive orders issued during the COVID-19 pandemic that have fulfilled their stated objectives and are no longer necessary.

The terminated orders pertained to:

- temporary emergency licensing requirements for health care facilities and workers;

- workers' compensation eligibility for first responders, health care workers, funeral home directors and employees, and individuals providing care to those with intellectual or development disabilities;

- the transfer of surplus state property needed for COVID-19 response;

- the reopening of certain businesses;

- work registration requirements for those seeking unemployment benefits; and

- public hearings conducted by the Department of Environmental Quality.

Burgum also terminated a prior executive order last week that had allowed for Public Service Commission permit hearings and Department of Trust Lands public land leasing auctions to be conducted by remote means.
