Governor Tim Walz is joining frontline workers to urge Minnesotans to work together to combat the spread of COVID-19.

“The sake of disagreeing for disagreeing, or making a public health crisis based on political ideology has put us in a really tough spot in this country, there’s no denying that our rates of infection and our rates of death are worse than any place in the world.”

Walz is expected to announce significant mitigation factors later this week to help prevent the pandemic from spreading further throughout the state.
