Nicollet County has opened their support phone line for residents to call if they have essential needs (food, medications, cleaning supplies, etc.) that cannot be met by friends, family, or neighbors. The phone line is available to assist the public who are under quarantine or self-isolation or for prevention of illness for high susceptibility due to COVID-19. If you are able to meet your needs with assistance of family and friends, we encourage you to continue to do so. If you are facing challenges with obtaining the essential items you need, please call 507-394-8550. We are also still available as a support line to individuals who would like to make contact with a Nicollet county employee.
