Statement on COVID-19 related death

Very sadly, we have learned of the first COVID-19 related death in Hennepin County.

"On behalf of the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners, I want to express my heartfelt condolences to the loved ones at this difficult time. As COVID-19 continues to spread, I thank our communities and residents for doing what we can to keep each other safe, and heeding Gov. Walz’s order to stay home.

This is a challenging time. We understand there are fears, concerns and uncertainty. We ask you to help those you can and stay in conversation with friends, family and those who might be vulnerable or alone. We are all in this together."

--Hennepin County Board Chair Marion Greene
