ND Smart Business Pledge


North Dakota is following ND Smart Restart, which includes a phased approach to reopening business. The business community plays a critical role in protecting our citizens and preventing COVID-19.

The ND Smart Business Pledge is a self-assessment for business owners to show that they are ND Smart and taking measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Interested in taking the ND Smart Business Pledge?
