Lake Country Cares is a COVID-19 safety campaign designed to build trust among residents, visitors, and local businesses. It’s our community promise to take care of each other by adopting easy and effective practices to prevent the spread of the virus. Working together, we will lead the way as life resumes in Minnesota. We are safer together.

Businesses: Submit Your COVID-19 Preparedness Plan

The State of Minnesota requires businesses to create a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan before they can reopen. It must be posted, follow a template, and cover items unique to your business. As a courtesy, the Crow Wing County Health Department has volunteered to review COVID-19 Preparedness Plans to ensure they meet state guidelines. To build consumer confidence, plans will be posted on the Lake Country Cares website.

Reopen Brainerd Lakes

To save our small businesses from closing their doors forever, we support the immediate development of a plan to reopen Minnesota businesses with state-recommended public health and safety accommodations as soon as possible. Local businesses should be allowed to reopen by conscientiously enacting these measures in a way that makes sense for their customers, facilities and operations. Delaying action will cause irreversible economic devastation to our Brainerd Lakes Area communities.
