In an effort to keep our community safe  Le Sueur County Public, along with Le Sueur County Emergency Management and our county community partners continuously work together to plan, exercise and organize a response to outbreaks of disease or other public health emergencies. One of the most important assets in our county is the strength in partnerships and ability to work together in a time of need, no matter the issue. 

During a Public Health Emergency:

As we have learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, workforce shortages jeopardized public health’s ability to respond. Staff from medical clinics, hospitals and pharmacies also experienced  workforce shortage stresses while continuing operations. If you live within Le Sueur County and have interest in signing up to volunteer to assist in a public health response regarding future emergencies please sign up for MN Responds (link below).
