Emergency Preparedness

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Wright County Public Health has the primary responsibility for assuring the overall health of the community in the event of any emergency. Since 2002, we have been enhancing our response plans through collaboration with community partners in the event of an infectious disease outbreak, natural disaster, bio-terrorism event, and a chemical or nuclear emergency.

  • For questions, call Wright County Public Health at 763-335-0280.
  • To report an emergency, call 911.
  • If you are ill, see your health care provider.
  • If you are a physician calling to report an infectious disease, please call the Minnesota Department of Health at 651-201-5414 or 1-877-676-5414.
