Grand Forks Herald: With North Dakota hospitals at 100% capacity, Burgum announces COVID-positive nurses can stay at work

Grand Forks Herald: With North Dakota hospitals at 100% capacity, Burgum announces COVID-positive nurses can stay at work. “North Dakota’s hospitals have reached their limit, and the coming weeks could push them past their capabilities, Gov. Doug Burgum said at a news conference on Monday, Nov. 9. Due to a major shortage of health care staffing, the state’s hospitals have a severe lack of available beds. Rising COVID-19 hospitalizations and high noncoronavirus admissions, some resulting from residents who deferred health care earlier in the pandemic, have caused the crunch on medical centers.”
