Situation in Minnesota

As of March 25, 2020

Total lab-confirmed positive tests: 287

The number of lab-confirmed positive tests, patients who no longer need to be isolated, deaths, hospitalizations, and the total approximate number of completed tests will be updated daily on Situation Update for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) with results from the previous day.
