FROM MCKENZIE COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
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 the Hospital – McKenzie County Healthcare Systems (MCHS) at 701-842-3000 #9. Call before presenting to the emergency room.
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.

Please Take Our Online Road Safety Survey!
McKenzie County is developing a plan to improve roadway safety throughout the entire County. The survey is an important tool that the study team is using to gather input from County residents, those who work in the County, and those who travel through the County. The survey is map-based and will allow you to find specific locations with a safety concern, identify it with a marker, and then provide a description about the concern. Note that your input will be kept completely confidential. We will not be asking for your name, address, or place of employment. Your input is invaluable!
Here is the link to the survey: https://srfconsulting.maps.arcgis.com/apps/GeoForm/index.html?appid=f9df65d8d56647eebcb9fabd7cac0655
Construction is currently underway on CR 55 & CR 2 from the intersection of Hwy 23/CR 10 to a mile north of where CR 55 turns into CR 2.
