Rochester City Council Supports ‘Shelter in Place’
Rochester, MN ( KROC AM News) - The Rochester City Council has taken an official position on a possible “shelter in place” decision.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz is still holding off on issuing such an order in another effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus/COVID-19.
But if he does make the call, he has the official backing of the Rochester City Council:
Shelter In Place Call to Governor Walz: The City Council respectfully requested Governor Walz to immediately issue an executive order placing further restrictions to combat COVID-19, including:
· All persons living in Minnesota stay in their place of residence subject to exceptions.
· Prohibit all public and private gatherings outside of a household or living unit.
· Closing all non-essential businesses.
The Council took the action during a short meeting Monday afternoon.
