VLAWMO Preparedness for COVID-19

VLAWMO is adjusting to the ongoing dynamics of COVID-19 by supporting social distancing and limiting our office hours. While primarily working from home, staff are rotating office visits to reduce the total number of people in the building at a given time.

Fieldwork, water monitoring, and service to the public such as site visits are resuming to their greatest capacity while upholding recommendations from the Center for Disease Control. VLAWMO staff can be reached remotely through email, however phone calls to the office may take several days to return. Our contact information can be found here

To help discourage the spread of COVID-19 and comply with the same building protocols as the City of Vadnais Heights, who VLAWMO shares offices with, VLAWMO is adhering to the City's COVID-19 preparedness plan as well as the State of Minnesota guidance linked below.
