Reserve 911 calls for emergencies only

The Sibley County Sheriff's Office is asking residents to call their health care provider rather than 911 if they feel they have COVID-19 (Corona Virus} symptoms. Heath care professionals are better equipped to assess symptoms and determine if patients need transport to an emergency room.

The goal of the request is to reserve 911 for emergencies, and to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus for first responders and ambulance personnel. If anyone feels their condition is an immediate, life threatening situation, they should call 911.

The Sheriff's Office and first responders appreciate the public's understanding and cooperation at this time.
