St. Paul school bus drivers and aides headed out with a week's worth of breakfasts and lunches to families of students along its route Wednesday, March 25, 2020, in St. Paul.

Up to 2.4 million Minnesotans could become infected with COVID-19, according to disease modeling conducted by state and university public health experts.

The stay-at-home order issued by Gov. Tim Walz on Wednesday won't necessarily bring down the number of infections. But researchers said the peak of the pandemic could be pushed back by several weeks, preserving limited health care resources while Minnesota struggles to get more masks, ventilators and testing supplies.
