The Seward Co-op on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis closed Sunday, March 15, after an employee tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The store is closed for deep cleaning until Tuesday.

Minnesota public health officials on Sunday confirmed the state's first three cases of community transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus, a worsening sign for the outbreak that means the virus has likely begun to circulate in communities in the state.

Minnesota now has 35 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 14 that were reported Saturday night and Sunday morning. The newest cases, involving patients ranging in age from 20 to 94, include one person who was hospitalized. No deaths have been recorded in the state.
