Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Olmsted County is making more changes to its facilities and services in response to the "stay at home" order from Governor Walz.

The county will suspend marriage license applications starting at 5 p.m. Friday, March 27 until May 4. The Recycling Center Plus will be closed to the public beginning at 4:30 p.m. on March 27 through April 10. Self-haulers are asked to check our website for options during this closure.

“As the novel coronavirus continues to spread in our community and statewide, it is critical that all residents follow the stay at home direction of Governor Walz and our public health leaders. We urge all residents to take this seriously and comply with the state’s stay at home restrictions,” said Olmsted County Board of Commissioners Chair Matt Flynn. “Evidence shows that limiting interpersonal interactions and staying home slows the spread of the virus to better protect us all – particularly the most vulnerable members of our community.”

“We know a stay at home order will be challenging for all of us. However, we also know it’s critical to minimize the number of people who get seriously ill at the same time, which can put too much of a burden on our healthcare system,” noted Olmsted County Director of Public Health Graham Briggs.
