Corona Virus (2019-nCoV)

The coronavirus outbreak has been declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the U.S., 11 cases have been confirmed in five states; there are no confirmed cases in Minnesota. 

While this situation is concerning, the latest information still suggests that the immediate health risk to the general public remains low. Olmsted County Public Health takes any new infectious disease seriously. We, along with our medical partners, are taking precautions and carefully monitoring the situation to determine whether transmission is merely sporadic or if it will spread consistently and easily in the U.S. 

This is a rapidly evolving situation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Olmsted County Public Health at (507) 328-7500. For more information view the Corona Virus Letter PDF.
