As coronavirus/COVID-19 continues to be an emerging issue for all of us, many of us in the victim service field have questions and concerns. How serious is the threat in Minnesota? How do we provide direct services and also protect victims and our staff from the virus? Where can someone get tested in my community?

MAC has found resources that we hope you’ll find helpful.

All organizations that have posted their policies here have generously agreed that MAC members and allies are welcome to utilize their policy when developing their own policies.
