Todd County COVID Update Executive Order 20-99
Todd County is experiencing a significant increase of COVID-19 cases along with the rest of Minnesota. From November 6 through November 19, Todd County reported 445 positive COVID-19 cases. With this large amount of community transmission, residents are more likely to come in contact with a person who is infected with the virus during family and social gatherings.
There is great concern that without following prevention measures our local hospitals may reach capacity and hospital beds will not be available to those who are seriously ill or injured. It remains critically important, at this point in time, that we all wear masks, social distance by at least six feet, wash our hands often, keep social/family gatherings small, and stay home if we’re feeling sick or have been exposed to COVID-19. The more we work together to practice these measures, the more we will help to slow the spread.
On November 18, Governor Walz signed Emergency Executive Order 20-99 which placed the following restrictions which took effect on Friday, November 20, and will remain in effect until Friday, December 18, at 11:59 p.m. . . .
