The Willmar Police and The Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Departments have videos on their Facebook pages explaining Governor Walz’s “Stay at Home” order and how to avoid the spread of COVID 19.   Willmar Police Chief Jim Felt says the messages are in several languages.

“On Facebook alone, the Somali message has been viewed over 12-thousand times, the Karen message over 27-thousand times, English about 4-thousand and Spanish close to 9 thousand.”

Felt says it’s important to get the message out to all ethnicities and age groups, especially teens who want to socialize and feel they won’t get sick from the virus.
