A day after Gov. Tim Walz announced Minnesota's K-12 public schools will close Wednesday to slow the spread of COVID-19, students at Patrick Henry High School in Minneapolis emptied their lockers and headed home at 3 p.m. Monday. Here, Principal Yusuf Abdullah, center, wished students well as they left the building.

Gov. Tim Walz on Monday ordered all Minnesota bars and restaurants to close temporarily for dine-in service starting Tuesday as the number of coronavirus cases in the state rose to more than 50.

The emergency measure to curb the spread of COVID-19 comes one day after the DFL governor announced the temporary closing of K-12 schools across the state starting Wednesday. Both measures followed those of other governors across the country as the nation mobilized to slow the virus' spread.
