The Minnesota Department of Health reported 348 new positive cases of COVID-19 Friday. MDH Commissioner Jan Malcom says that’s the state’s highest one day total since June fifth and the third straight day of increasing numbers. But Malcom adds the state reported a high testing volume as well.

“We processed over 14-thousand tests on Thursday,” said Malcom.

MDH says 3.5 percent of tests reported Friday ended up being positive.
