May 28, 2020

State health officer Mylynn Tufte has resigned.

She’s been with the Burgum Administration for the past three years.

Gov. Doug Burgum said Tufte will leave June 1, and return to private practice. At his Capitol briefing Wednesday, Burgum praised Tufte.

"She's been terrific through this whole (coronavirus) thing," Burgum said. "She's been tireless in her energy, in doing one of the biggest jobs in the state. She's doing it with a lot of poise."
