Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm says as vaccinations continue rolling out, Minnesotans still need to be cautious as covid variants continue to circulate:

“While we are all pleased to see things moving in the right direction we need to keep our eye on the fact there is still a lot of viral activity around our state. Our cases on a population basis are high and ticking back up a bit.”

Malcolm says getting the vaccination into the arms of Minnesotans is key in order to prevent another COVID-19 surge.
