Do you have any unneeded medications at home? ¿Tiene medicamentos que ya no necesita en su casa?

According to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, two-thirds of teens who misused pain relievers in the past year say they got them from family and friends and from home medicine cabinets. Safe disposal makes medicines less available.

FREE disposal boxes are available 7 days per week, 24 hours per day and are in the lobbies of the police departments in Faribault (closed during COVID) and Northfield, as well as the Rice County Sheriff’s office. In addition, Allina Health District One Pharmacy in Faribault has a free disposal box which is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

For more information, go to www.ricecountycmhc.org or call 507-664-3524.

Según la Partnership for Drug-Free Kids (La Asociación para Jóvenes Libres de Drogas), dos tercios de los adolescentes que usaron calmantes de dolor en forma indebida durante el año pasado dicen que las obtuvieron de familiares y amigos y del gabinete de medicinas en su hogar. Las medicinas están menos disponibles cuando se desechan de manera segura.

Cajas GRATUITAS están disponibles 7 días a la semana, 24 horas al día en los vestíbulos de los destacamentos de policía en Faribault (cerrado durante COVID) y Northfield así como también en la oficina del Alguacil del Condado Rice. Además, en la farmacia de Allina Health District One en Faribault hay una caja gratuita para desecho, la que está disponible de lunes a viernes, 9 a.m. a 5:30 p.m.

Update to Self-Screening Checklist for COVID-19

Based on continued guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health, we have made some clarifications on our self-screening checklist. Families are currently receiving the updated document via Infinite Campus, but please feel free to push it out during your online interactions, as well. It's incredibly important that parents see this document frequently and are reminded to make sure their children are symptom-free before sending them to school. I will provide you with translated versions as soon as they're available.
