For the better part of eight weeks, our area residents and businesses have done what has been asked of them. They have flattened the curve and allowed time for our healthcare system to ramp up their preparedness for the occurrence of positive covid-19 cases. This was the original goal. Our healthcare system in Minnesota has not been overrun and appears to have greatly decreased that concern.
The Hubbard County Republican BPOU Convention, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, has been postponed until further notice to be in compliance with state and CDC gathering guidelines during the pandemic. A new date has not yet been set, said chair Dave De La Hunt. "Continue to stay connected through email or by calling. We will do our best to update information and get call letters out at the appropriate time. We appreciate your participation in the election process and encourage you to make sure your census surveys are completed, as an accurate count is so important for representation for us in northern Minnesota. May you be symptom free and healthy."
