MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz says he might have to follow California’s lead at some point and order residents to shelter in place to try to slow the spread of COVID-19. The governor said in an interview on WCCO Radio on Friday morning that he certainly thinks it’s a possibility. He says experts are working to determine what steps are needed in Minnesota, and that he needs “every tool in the toolbox.” The governor also says the COVID-19 numbers are going to “jump way up” when the Minnesota Department of Health updates its figures. Minnesota had 89 confirmed cases as of Thursday.
