Keep up to date on the latest coronavirus information
The Minnesota Department of Health is leading the statewide response to the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic. The City is working closely with the Minnesota Department of Health and Hennepin County to respond. Right now the most important thing for everyone to do is help keep the disease from spreading.
Protect yourself, help slow the spread
The best ways to keep from spreading the disease are to thoroughly wash your hands; avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and stay home when you’re sick.
Even if you don’t have any symptoms, it’s important to keep at least 6 feet away from others. That’s about an arm’s length from you, an arm’s length from them and another foot in between.
What if I have symptoms?
This is the guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health:
· If you have a fever and respiratory symptoms and can take care of yourself at home and wouldn’t have called your health provider otherwise, you don’t need to now. Do make sure you stay home when you’re sick and avoid passing anything along to others.
· Always seek medical help if you have difficulty breathing or if you would have sought medical help at any other time. Do take precautions and keep from passing anything along to others.
The CDC also offers detailed guidance if you think you are sick; find that information here: take care of yourself, and keep from spreading coronavirus disease 19.
