County still seeking mask donations

The Austin Fire Department, in collaboration with the Emergency Operation Center, is still in need of cloth face coverings.

The AFD held a facemask donation drive several weeks ago. Those masks were distributed to nursing homes, long-term care facilities and residents in need.

The AFD has a collection container outside the fire station front door next to the dog statue.

Mower County Health and Human Services is asking residents who have COVID-19 symptoms to seek medical attention when symptoms first appear. Anyone with symptoms can call 507-433-7351 to connect with the Mayo Clinic Health System-Austin triage line for a COVID-19 screening.
