But, We Are Still Here to Help!

The daily operations at the NWRDC will continue. Please note: Our team is here to serve you and continue our work. Staff are working remotely using email, telephone, and other forms of communications. Until further notice, meetings will be postponed or held via phone or video conferencing. All classes, presentations, and in-person appointments are postponed until further notice.

The Senior LinkAge Line (phone service) will continue to operate as normal. For assistance, call 1-800-333-2433.

Thank you for your understanding and we’ll update you when business returns to normal.  We continue to monitor the corona virus situation closely, and will follow the Minnesota Department of Health, CDC, and World Health Organization for updates and guidance.
