The requirement went into effect due to the rapid spread of the Omicron Variant of SARS-CoV2 in Olmsted County. Local case counts were higher than they have ever been during the course of the pandemic and it caused significant stress for the local healthcare system, both from the volume of patients as well as the level of sickness experienced by health care providers themselves.

The declaration started on January 16th and was in effect for just over three weeks.
