Commerce releases North Dakota COVID-19 Community Impact Survey
Post Date: Apr 16 2020

BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Department of Commerce encourages all North Dakota residents to participate in the North Dakota COVID-19 Community Impact Survey. 
 
Led by Commerce’s Main Street Initiative team in partnership with other state agencies, the survey opened to the public this week and already has provided valuable input that will help structure future programs and outreach.
 
The goal of the survey is to understand how the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is impacting communities and individuals across the state. Survey participants will be asked to provide experiences since March 13 when Gov. Doug Burgum declared a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  
 
“By understanding exactly how this pandemic is impacting individuals and households in communities around North Dakota, Commerce and partner agencies will be able to effectively leverage assets, resources and programs to support North Dakotans during this challenging time,” Deputy Commerce Commissioner Shawn Kessel said. “We encourage every North Dakotan to share their thoughts.”
 
In addition to the community survey, Commerce is also leading a similar effort to better understand the experiences of businesses in North Dakota. The business survey is currently closed but will re-open in a few weeks.
