As of 4:30pm Tuesday, McLeod County suspended public-facing non-essential services through March 30, 2020, at 4:30 pm.
Officials say they’ll use the time as a planning period to respond to the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
McLeod County offices providing public-facing services will be closed to in-person public contact. Employees will still attend work, providing services via phone and electronic means when possible; required essential services will be provided in-person. The Law Enforcement Center and Sheriff’s Office window will remain open (yes, the McLeod County Jail is still open).
Court Services and Court Administration will remain open at this time. Other McLeod County facility buildings are closed to the public, including the McLeod County Fairgrounds. If you have an event at the McLeod County Fairgrounds between March 17 and March 30, you will be contacted regarding cancellation.
All updates will be posted on the McLeod County website (www.co.mcleod.mn.us) and on the McLeod County Facebook page.
