Gov. Tim Walz to Minnesota: 'Stay at home'


March 26, 2020

The Rev. Erik Lundgren listened to confessions outside Sts. Joachim & Anne Catholic Church in Shakopee on Wednesday, an adaptation made to cope with COVID-19.

Gov. Tim Walz issued an executive order Wednesday asking Minnesotans to stay in their homes unless absolutely necessary, his most dramatic action to date to slow the coronavirus pandemic in the state.

The "stay-at-home" order, to begin at 11:59 p.m. Friday, is based on models developed by the Minnesota Department of Health and the University of Minnesota that suggest that the state will run out of hospital intensive care capacity before infection rates peak - leaving many Minnesotans at greater risk of death from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
