Reece Wallaker, a medical assistant with M Health Fairview, administered a COVID-19 test to an actor and fellow Fairview employee, Nichole Brown, outside the M Health Fairview Fridley clinic Tuesday.

An Anoka County resident who is Minnesota's third case of COVID-19 is hospitalized in critical condition, leaving state epidemiologists without the individual's immediate help to identify close contacts who might also be at risk of infection.

State health officials who announced the finding Tuesday said the priority is the patient's health and recovery. So they are relying at first on information from the patient's relatives to identify and evaluate those contacts, said Kris Ehresmann, infectious disease director for the Minnesota Department of Health.
