The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the world to its core, and Wright County has not been immune to the impacts. Because of the urgent and widespread needs affecting all sectors of the community, this Community Assessment update is intended to provide some initial information to describe the scope of this crisis on our community and to support the many different responses that will be required to address emerging, evolving needs. It is likely that as needs evolve, some of those needs will not be captured in this update and therefore some necessary community responses may not connect to the needs identified in this document. However, it is our hope that the information included can help shape strategies to help our entire community thrive during these unprecedented times. Please take a moment to review the information collected. Feel free to reach out to us with your questions or concerns.
