For reliable information about COVID-19 see the following link to our state Department of Public Health COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date local information   https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/index.html and hotline for the public: 651-201-3920. Also, the MN Employee Assistance Program provides free, confidential consultation on matters personal or professional.  The national CDC offers information on cautionary procedures https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html and the Ready.gov website provides tools to help you make and practice a preparedness plan.

As many of you know or will be informed in the Newsletter which was just mailed, our City Hall has been changed to the First Calvary Baptist Church, 5495 S. Robert Trail, Sunfish Lake, MN 55077. Due to the current surge and anticipated future surge of COVID 19, it is neither prudent or practical to hold City meetings there during the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the City Council and Planning Commission meetings will continue to be held via on-line ZOOM meetings at least through the summer of 2021 or until the Council determines the emergency no longer exists. Notices on the website will give instructions as to how to participate.

One final note; We have had a difficult year and tensions are high with many people. Therefore, if you see any suspicious activity please report it to the police at either 911 or the West St. Paul Police at 651-322-2323

Warmest regards to all.
