It appears the Cottonwood County Recorder's Office will be closed until at least Nov. 4, due to employee exposures to a positive COVID case.
Citizen Online received this message from Emergency Management Director Paul Johnson moments ago:
"Cottonwood County is closing the office to follow current CDC guidelines regarding quarantine and isolation. Due to this closure, anyone who had an appointment with the Recorder's Office will need to reschedule their appointment to a later date.
"The Minnesota Department of Health and Des Moines Valley Health and Human Services are completing the contact tracing for this positive case.
"If you have recently visited the Recorder's Office and not contacted by DVHHS or MDH, chances are you are not considered a close contact. You do not need to quarantine for 14 days; however, you should monitor for symptoms.
"Symptoms for COVID include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, new loss of taste, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. If symptoms do develop, stay home and consult your physician for further medical care.
"Cottonwood County will notify the public when services will be opened for business. More information on COVID can be found at the Minnesota Department of Health's website."
