As news of COVID-19 progresses rapidly across the country and in Minnesota, City of Burnsville has been working collaboratively to monitor the quickly changing situation. The City places a high value on providing quality service to the public, but as the pandemic continues we have decided to make operational changes.

We will continue to update this page as additional information becomes available about how the City of Burnsville is working with our local partners and employees to protect the health of our community.

Please browse our website if you have questions -- much of the information the public needs about City services can be found online. You can also contact City staff directly. View our staff directory for more information. Staff will continue working to provide public service as quickly and effectively as possible via phone and email.
