Neighborhood & Community Relations
When residents are informed, connected to their community and feel represented in City government, they are empowered to influence decisions that impact their lives.
Get tested after attending large gatherings such as protests, vigils, donation drives and community cleanups
The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that any Minnesotan who has attended a protest, vigil or community cleanup get tested for COVID-19. COVID-19 can spread easily and quickly in large groups of people who are close together for long periods of time. Even people who do not have symptoms can still spread the virus to others.
If you start to feel sick, get tested right away. If you do not feel sick, get tested as soon as you can, but no later than five-seven days after the event.
If the test is negative and you are worried you might have been exposed, get another test 12-14 days after the event – even if you don’t feel sick. Wash your hands often. Get tested when sick. Stay 6 feet away from others. Wear a mask. Stay home when able.
