I recently traveled within the last 14 days. I’m not sure if I was somewhere with coronavirus (COVID-19). What should I do?

FAQ Answer

People with recent travel within the United States to an area designated to have widespread transmission are being asked to quarantine for 14 days (regardless of mode of transportation) and to watch for signs and symptoms of infection which include fever, cough or shortness of breath. People who are quarantined for these reasons are to comply with the requirements set forth in the State Health Officer Confinement Order.  If you become sick, contact a health care provider for recommendations for COVID-19 testing.

People who have traveled within the past 14 days and want more information about what they can do to monitor their health, can fill out the North Dakota Department of Health’s Traveler Survey at: https://ndhealth.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eb7sJjKhR2UfB7n 

At the end of the survey, people will be given guidance on what type of self-monitoring they should be doing to watch for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
