LCSC Update - Building Closed Throughout Month of May
We hope that you are doing well and that your spirits have been lifted by time with family and the examples of heroism, selflessness and courage emerging from this pandemic. We know that it has been a stressful time with many unknowns, and we are grateful for your continued understanding and patience.
Within Governor Walz’ most recent address, he announced that starting Monday, May 4th customer-facing retail will be open for curbside-pickup and delivery. In addition, Governor Walz has extended the stay-at-home order until May 18th. He stated that we cannot eliminate COVID-19 without a vaccine, however, we can slow the spread and lessen the burden of healthcare facilities and workers by staying home and practicing social distancing when performing essential duties.
As we have stated on numerous occasions, the health of our team, their families, our members and community is of the utmost importance to Lakes Country Service Cooperative. As a result, our office will remain closed to the public throughout the month of May and LCSC employees are encouraged to continue their work remotely.

Governor Walz' "Stay At Home" order that was announced to combat the growing COVID-19 pandemic will continue to be in effect at LCSC. In response to his decree on April 8th, we are extending the closure of LCSC's buildings through May 4th. According to Governor Walz, staying at home and social distancing through May 4th will not only continue to pay off, but will also buy Minnesota more time to gather the supplies and resources needed before the anticipated peak. Our staff is well prepared for this extension and feel we are well positioned to continue our services while working remotely. Please continue to check back here for further news and updates regarding LCSC's response to COVID-19.
