Hospitals and healthcare workers are struggling to keep up amid increases in COVID-19 cases statewide and Minnesota Medical Association President Dr. Marilyn Peitso is reminding Minnesotans:

“The vast majority of healthcare workers who have covid catch it in the community, they do not catch it at work, and at work we mask, we maintain social distancing, we wash our hands.”

Peitso says we all need to do these things if we want to “get through to the other side of economic damage and human damage” caused by the virus.
