The Blue Earth County COVID-19 dashboard has been created using data received from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). MDH updates case data throughout the day as more information is gathered through case investigations. Blue Earth County updates data on this website as time allows. As a result, Blue Earth County case numbers will not always match what MDH posts on their Situation Update for COVID-19 site. More detailed county level data is updated weekly on the MN Department of Health's weekly report.
Data on this site reflects residents who have been tested and had a lab confirmed positive diagnosis. All data is preliminary and may change as additional case investigation occurs. County level data on recovered (out of isolation) individuals is not reported directly to counties, however is communicated to affected individuals.
Visit the MDH and Center for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 websites for continuously updated information. MDH offers a hotline for individuals who may have questions about COVID-19 at 651-201-3920; it is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
