Governor Tim Walz is teaming up with Twin Cities-based celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern in Minnesota’s new campaign urging everyone working in the foodservice industry to get their COVID-19 vaccination:

“Our industry has been asked to pivot more than anyone and creatively all the while the restaurant industry in America has represented the highest number of people on unemployment collectively as much as 25-percent at one point.”

Restaurant workers are the initial focus of the campaign, which is part of the broader statewide ‘Roll Up Your Sleeves, MN’ effort to connect frontline workers to the resources they need to get vaccinated at community sites.
