Morrison County officials discourage non-essential visits


The Morrison County Government Center in Little Falls remains open for business during regular hours, but county officials are now discouraging “non-essential visits.”

The response is due to the recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control, according to officials.

“Morrison County is trying to do our part to help respond to this emerging public health threat,” Morrison County Administrator Deb Gruber stated in a Sunday, March 15, letter.

County officials are encouraging sick employees to stay home and are offering them flexibility with their work schedules to take care of family members, according to the letter.

“We are asking the public to please be patient as some services may take longer than normal due to limited staffing levels,” Gruber stated in the letter.


County employees have been directed to practice social distancing, good hand hygiene, and appropriate cough and sneeze etiquette while the staff is routinely cleaning frequently touched surfaces such as workstations, countertops, restrooms and doorknobs for everyone’s safety.

For those who need county assistance or need to conduct business with the county, call 320-632-2941 or email .
