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.

Businesses are ready to restart our economy, keep us safe

Businesses throughout Minnesota – especially small businesses – are eagerly awaiting their turn to fully open. They have taken the necessary safety precautions, with detailed, effective preparedness plans in place. Knowing that they could reopen or increase customer capacity on a certain date would help small businesses start to refuel our economy, and safely welcome back their employees and customers.
 
Small businesses are the economic engine of our state’s future. Without decisive action, many will be lost. This is not simply a personal loss for business owners. This is a loss to the employees, their communities, the local governments and the state in terms of commercial and economic activity.
 
We’re partnering with 70 local chambers of commerce and trade organizations to form the Minnesota Ready coalition in an effort to quickly and safely reopen Minnesota’s economy.

We need your help. Once more. Right now.

The finish line is in sight. There is strength in numbers, and your voice can make a difference. Small businesses are the economic engine of our state’s future. Without action, many will be lost. This is not simply a personal loss for business owners. This is a loss to the employees, their communities, their local governments, and the state itself.
