Prevent COVID-19

Help Stop the Spread
Posted on 03/26/2020

Please be aware the total tested positive number reflected in the Minnesota Department of Health case information may not be representative of all the COVID-19 cases currently in Minnesota. The number only reflects the people who have actually been tested for COVID-19 and were positive. The actual number of cases is likely much larger, which is why it is so important to follow the protocols set forth by Governor Walz and the State of Minnesota.

In addition to the shelter in place order through April 10 by Governor Walz, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 follow the same precautions you would to avoid colds and flu:

Wash your hands.
Stay at home when you are sick.
Cover your cough.

City Operations Update - COVID-19

Posted March 16, 2020

The City of Corcoran is committed to providing high-quality public services during this unprecedented event. Essential services, such as public safety, water and waste water utilities, and street maintenance will continue and are a priority. Also at this time, City Hall and the Police Department continue to hold normal hours of operation for lobby areas. We ask however, that you visit only as necessary and you utilize electronic communication and phone communication as much as possible.

If you do need to visit City Hall, it is requested you make an appointment with the individual you need to speak to in order to limit the time at the counter. Please be aware that some responses may take more time than usual as we are currently adapting our operations as necessary to provide services while also taking necessary precautions. If you have questions or concerns and don’t know who to contact, please reach out to Brad Martens, City Administrator at bmartens@ci.corcoran.mn.us. Take care and remember to be nice to each other. We’re all in this together.
