COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA ~~~ May 19, 2020 (LSN) At today’s meeting for Discussion and Action Related to COVID-19 Pandemic Response, the Cook County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to issue a revised travel advisory for those planning to visit Cook County.
The advisory reads as follows:
This is a revision to a travel advisory issued by the Cook County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, in response to concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19. The County Board above all advises that all residents and visitors abide by the most recent Executive Orders issued by the governor and any changes to state law.
Due to the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the operational changes by individual businesses based on the governor’s orders, the Board of Commissioners issues this travel advisory for persons planning to visit Cook County.
Retail businesses are opening with plans to ensure the safety of employees and the public. Access to businesses may be limited and require that individuals wear face coverings. A business can refuse service to individuals ignoring these restrictions.
Although many lodging businesses have opened with plans and restrictions, others are choosing to remain closed. Both private and public developed campgrounds remain closed to recreational camping, but dispersed and remote camping sites (such as BWCA campsites) are open for single household use only. Visitors should plan accordingly.
