Legislative Update (3-17-20)

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Neighbor,

The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in major changes in our day-to-day business and I want people of District 2B to know I remain committed to working on their behalf and am available as a resource.

The House formally will remain in session as the state addresses the pressing public health issue surrounding COVID-19, with meetings and floor sessions taking place on an on-call basis until April 14. Alternate means of working will allow the House to respond to the needs of Minnesotans, while also fully complying with Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines including social distancing, limiting large gatherings, telework, and increased cleaning measures necessitated by COVID-19.

This outbreak is a challenge for all of us and, as a legislator, I’m just working to make the best of the hand we’ve been dealt. For now, that means finding different ways to communicate with the people I represent and being there as a resource for anyone who needs assistance. We’re just taking this one day at a time and, together, we’ll get through this. I urge people to take advantage of hotlines and other tools the state has made available and let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.

MDH hotlines are available to assist Minnesotans, including a public line (651) 201-3920 and a line for questions specifically related to schools and/or childcare (651) 297-1304. Several online resources also are available to help individuals stay up to date:

Please stay in touch and let me know how I can help.

-Steve
