Freezing weather in Minnesota brings us all indoors in confined spaces with poor ventilation, but this year Chisago County Public Health is encouraging Chisago County residents to get outside this winter, whether it's your backyard or cross-country skiing the Chisago Lakes Water Trail. These winter months will be challenging and although Public Health understands that we are all tired of COVID-19, it's not tired of us. We must continue our efforts in slowing the spread of this virus.
Freeze the Disease is a new campaign centered around being outdoors which is good for both your physical and mental health. By remaining 6 feet away from others (outside of your immediate household), covering your nose and mouth to stay warm and to protect yourself and others from the virus, and helping to preserve our local hospital capacity. A vaccine will come, but until then regardless of gender, age, or ethnicity we have to do our part to Freeze the Disease in Chisago County!
