THE OPENING OF MILLE LACS COUNTY BUILDINGS TO THE PUBLIC
Mille Lacs County is starting a phased approach to reopening all County facilities. Resident and employee safety remains our primary focus to ensure that services are restored in a safe manner that mitigates the potential transmission of COVID-19 throughout County facilities. The Mille Lacs County Historic Courthouse and Justice Center will reopen to the public on Monday, June 22, 2020, with the exception of Community and Veterans Services and the County Attorney’s Office open by appointment only. Mille Lacs County will also continue providing normal services to the public via phone, email, fax, and mail.
Mille Lacs County has developed a Preparedness Plan to assist with the transition of reopening County facilities. The Preparedness Plan may be viewed on the County website (www.millelacs.mn.gov). The public is encouraged to wear face coverings and practice social distancing while visiting County facilities. Do not enter County facilities if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness.
