Plymouth Mayor Declares “State of Local Emergency”
Plymouth Mayor Jeff Wosje officially declared a state of local emergency in Plymouth Thursday, March 19, in response to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
A local emergency declaration allows Plymouth’s Emergency Management Team to request and coordinate necessary aid and resources from county and state partners, as needed. It also permits the city to quickly and efficiently mobilize available resources, conduct immediate purchasing and contracting, and take other necessary actions to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community.

The mayor’s declaration takes immediate effect. The declaration follows a March 13 executive order by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, which declared a peace time emergency.
The Plymouth City Council is expected to extend the emergency declaration at its March 24 meeting.
