Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Olmsted County residents are being asked to take part in a local survey as officials are trying to assess the impact the Covid pandemic has had on the community.
Information gathered from the survey will help community leaders understand the greater impacts the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Olmsted County residents. It will also help establish community initiatives that address the current three health priorities of mental health, financial stress, and substance use.

The online survey is being offered in three languages: English, Somali, and Spanish.

The survey takes an estimated 15 minutes to complete and asks questions related to clinical care, the physical environment, personal behaviors, and other factors that affect our health. Participation in the survey is completely voluntary and all answers are strictly confidential; no identifying information will ever be linked to any of the responses. Surveys must be completed by 5 p.m. February 28, 2021.
