Minnesota Governor Tim Walz says lifting the ban on medical elective care and surgeries could come as early as next week.

“We’ll look on Monday to go back to some of these elective surgeries,” said Walz. “The hospitals are indicating they’re ready to go.”

Walz says the hospitals are indicating they have enough personal protective equipment to move forward. Walz made his comments to Lynn Kittelson of the Linder Farm Network.
