With lower vaccine rates compared to other counties in Minnesota and Wisconsin, we encourage everyone eligible to get vaccinated. It is important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic, cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others if you are not vaccinated, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, wash your hands often and get tested if you are having symptoms.

For county specific information, Burnett, Chisago and Polk County are all sharing updates on their websites. For general COVID-19 questions, 211 is also a resource.

We have a brief video explaining the vaccine process:
