A Statement from the Rochester City Council

Post Date:03/25/2020 3:23 PM

March 25, 2020 - The Rochester City Council would like to thank the community for their collaborative efforts in addressing this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Walz’s “Stay at Home” executive order. These are certainly unsettling times as all of us deal with the outbreak.

Times like these demonstrate the resiliency, courage and positive attitude of our community members and make us so proud to be part of it.  Even as we work through the next days, weeks and months, we know that we will be equally challenged in terms of recovery for our community members, businesses, and workforce.  Please know that the City of Rochester is doing whatever we can to manage through this current challenge and provide support going forward.

The importance of the COVID-19 pandemic should not be minimized and many community resources are already available. In addition, the City of Rochester, along with other partners, continue to work to identify additional resources and creative solutions to best meet the needs of our community.  For information about these various resources, there is a webpage specifically on COVID-19 where those links can be accessed. In addition to the resources listed on the webpage, the following state hotlines are available:

  • COVID-19 Hotline: 651-201-3920

  • Schools and Daycares Hotline: 651-297-1304

We thank everyone for their cooperation, support and engagement as we move through this unprecedented time as a unified community.
