RELEASE: Rep. Nelson still working for constituents amid COVID-19 outbreak

Monday, March 16, 2020


ST. PAUL – State Rep. Nathan Nelson (R-Hinckley) said he will continue working to represent the citizens of District 11B, even as the Minnesota House’s daily operations have been altered amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

The House formally will remain in session as the state addresses the pressing public health issue surrounding COVID-19, with meetings and floor sessions taking place on an on-call basis until April 14. Nelson said alternate means of working will allow the House to respond to the needs of Minnesotans, while also fully complying with Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) guidelines including social distancing, limiting large gatherings, telework, and increased cleaning measures necessitated by COVID-19.

“In the face of the challenges created by this quickly-developing situation, I want folks to know they can continue contacting me with questions or concerns,” said Nelson. “I will continue representing our community while remaining ready to travel to the Capitol to take emergency legislative action if called upon. Despite these unprecedented circumstances, I want to maintain regular communication with our community, so please reach out if I can help you or your family in any way.”

Nelson indicated MDH hotlines are available to assist Minnesotans, including a public line (651) 201-3920 and a line for questions specifically related to schools and/or childcare (651) 297-1304. Several online resources also are available to help individuals stay up to date:
