We need to be prepared, not scared!
There is so much good information out there, and as department heads and community leaders for all of McKenzie County it is absolutely essential that we continue to endorse accurate information to prevent undue panic from the community.
If you or someone you know are having respiratory symptoms (cough, fever, or shortness of breath) please call one of the following:
Urgent Care 701.842.6470
McKenzie County Hospital 701.842.3000
MCHS is following state and national guidelines and is restricting visitation at the nursing home and the assisted living facility only to immediate family members of residents who are at end of life.
At this time we would recommend cancelling or rescheduling any large meetings, asking the public to limit courthouse visits to absolute necessity, and we will put any new information on the McKenzie County Emergency Management Facebook page.
There is a Toll free Public Health hotline: 866-207-2880

Emergency Management is an ongoing effort to keep you, the
residents of McKenzie County, SAFE!
Emergency Management seeks to promote safer, less vulnerable
communities with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters by using
mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery processes. This is accomplished
by coordinating with others in emergency response, government, private sector
and community stakeholders.
We have a few leaflets and brochures available in Spanish.
