By Staff | Mar 22, 2020

The Faribault County Commissioners met for an emergency meeting by phone to enact two resolutions regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic affecting the United States.

The first resolution declares Faribault County in a State of Emergency for the next 30 days with the option to extend the time period if necessary.

The purpose of the resolution is to allow Faribault County to request needed resources from the state and federal level in order to mitigate and recover from the current COVID-19 public health emergency.

County Board members also passed a resolution limiting access to county buildings.

Beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 19, all Faribault County facilities doors will be locked until further notice. Public access will be severely limited to specific reasons only.

Members of the public should direct all inquiries to specific county departments, which can be viewed on the Faribault County website at www.co.faribault.mn.us.

All employees will continue to be available to assist the public and conduct county business via email, telephone and electronically.
