With statewide restrictions in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, some workers report their employers will not let them work from home, even if it’s possible. Governor Tim Walz’s advice on that:

“What I’m telling people is, if you feel like you’re being put in harm’s way, if you’re being put at a risk in that you are compromised, make sure you’re talking to your employer. If not, talk to us at the state.”

Walz says they’re trying to strike a balance between slowing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping essential services and the economy going. He’s asking everyone “to have their better angels win out here.”
