Tens of thousands of newly idled Minnesota workers slammed the state with unemployment requests Tuesday seeking early benefits following Gov. Tim Walz's emergency order closing bars, restaurants and other public places to slow the spread of COVID-19.

As businesses closed or scaled back operations, officials said Tuesday afternoon that more than 31,000 people had applied for unemployment insurance over the past two days.
