Barron County Plans for Pandemic

The Barron County Department of Public Health and Barron County Office of Emergency Management have released a pandemic preparedness and response plan. They are working to open a COVID Triage Facility for patients experiencing minor symptoms.

The triage facility will have the capability to provide COVID testing, basic respiratory care (oxygen, nebulizers, etc), and IV fluids. One goal of the triage facility is to reduce the number of minor and walking-well patients presenting to local emergency rooms.

The plan also includes the opening of the Barron County Alternate Care Center. This facility will be a pre-hospital location that is designed to offer residents a resource and a central location for medical guidance and minor treatments.
