Will this weekend’s demonstrations in the Twin Cities lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases?

“I don’t know that anyone can make any specific prognostications about this,” said Malcom. “But I think it will be difficult to tease out the effects of several variables that are happening at the same.”

MDH Commissioner Jan Malcom says those who attended the gatherings need to be monitoring themselves.

“We’ll be urging people to even perhaps more carefully monitor their symptoms,” said Malcom. “Especially if they were participating in these events. And if anyone starts to be symptomatic they need to quarantine themselves in the next couple of weeks.”

Malcom encourages anyone who feels symptomatic to get tested.
