Rice County COVID-19 Resource Guide

Rice County Public Health has created a COVID-19 Resource Guide for community members during this time of changing resource availability. This guide can be found on the Rice County COVID-19 website ( under “Hotlines and Other Resources.”

The COVID-19 website was created to help keep Rice County residents up to date on the COVID-19 pandemic, and to share guidance on ways to slow the spread of disease.

The resource guide includes information that may help residents with specific questions or needs that are COVID-19 related.  Rice County Public Health staff will continue to work on keeping the resource guide up to date, since this information may frequently change. Suggestions for additions or changes to the resource guide may be sent directly to or by calling 507.333.3818.   

As a reminder, the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 can be found on the MDH and CDC websites:
