Countywide Elected Leaders Share Message, Resources with County Residents
Dear Carver County Citizens,
As Carver County elected leaders, the health and safety of all residents is of the utmost importance. We write today to ensure you officials across our cities and county are doing everything they can to coordinate our COVID-19 response.
On Friday, Feb. 28, Carver County activated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to coordinate and support our activities in response to COVID-19. As you know, COVID-19 is causing significant disruption to our schools, businesses, and organizations, impacting public events, employees and our communities. Activating the EOC brings together the knowledge and expertise of our decision makers to coordinate critical responses.
Effective communication is an important component related to managing what is now a global pandemic, so we want to provide you with the following resources and information on this topic.
