Epidemiologists tell us it is not a matter of "if" we have another pandemic but, rather "when" we have another pandemic.

Le Sueur County Public Health, along with county emergency managers, are working to plan, and exercise, an organized response to outbreaks of disease or other public health emergencies. Le Sueur County officials, under the direction of regional and state agencies, have plans in place as to how to manage public health emergencies. The plan might involve medicating or vaccinating our entire population or it might be a matter of teaching people how to protect themselves without the use of pharmaceuticals.
