Cook County Issues Travel Advisory

Cook County Issues Travel Advisory

Response to concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19.

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~  March 25, 2020  (LSN)  The Cook County Board of Commissioners issued a travel advisory Tuesday, March 24, 2020, in response to concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Commissioners determined it prudent to issue a travel advisory for persons planning to visit Cook County and persons planning to return to their summer cabins or second homes in Cook County. The following guidelines have been provided and will remain in effect until further notice:

  1. Due to high community transmission in certain areas of the state and across the nation, Cook County is recommending that visitors stay in their home area, including people who have a seasonal or second home in Cook County, due to the county’s limited healthcare infrastructure.
  2. People who have seasonal homes in Cook County, please stay at your primary residence at this time. If you are already in Cook County, you should immediately self-quarantine for 14-days. If you have questions, please call the county’s COVID-19 line at (218) 387-3668.
  3. Cook County has one of the highest populations of older adults in the state of Minnesota. This population is among those at the highest risk of COVID-19; it is our priority to keep our older residents healthy and safe.
  4. On March 17, 2020, the Cook County Board of Commissioners declared a countywide COVID-19 State of Emergency. Please be aware that additional health and travel restrictions may be imposed during this time.
  5. This is an everchanging and very serious health situation, and Cook County needs to be diligent in its response.
