Governor Tim Walz extended his “stay at home” edict for the state of Minnesota until the 18th of May. With that though, Walz says the restrictions will be eased starting Monday.

Walz says the cautious approach is necessary when it comes to COVID-19.

In response to the extension, Minnesota Senate Majority leader Paul Gazelka said, “The Governor is asking the right questions and looking at the right data, but I’m disappointed he’s not turning the dial further today. I think he should move further, and faster, opening businesses up again in Minnesota.”

While telling us to keep our guard up, Walz repeated a common theme that the virus could pop up again.
