Hennepin County’s Role In Contact Tracing After Private Fundraising Event For President Trump Guidance From Minnesota Department Of Health

Hennepin County Public Health is aware that the President participated in a fundraising event that took place at a residence in the county, during his infectious period. We learned about this event through the local media.
