In light of the new cases of COVID-19 in the state, Beltrami County Public Health and Beltrami County Emergency Management hosted a meeting with a broad set of community partner organizations, aimed at getting the community on the same page with a consistent response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. All who took part, agree that it was very informative to hear what organizations are already doing to prepare, especially about the level of planning Sanford Health has completed for any potential need for testing, and a possible surge of patients. Sanford Health is providing testing based on clinical judgement. If you are ill and suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your provider before traveling to medical facilities. Locally, additional information is available on the Sanford Health website for updates.
