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.
