Minnesota House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler spoke with members of the states emergency response community including firefighters, police officers, nurses, corrections officer sand and public health workers as they gathered, while observing recommended distancing, for a press conference to ask the legislator to provide them with worker protections amid the Coronavirus pandemic Thursday.

Minnesota lawmakers taking extraordinary precautions to maintain social distancing voted overwhelmingly Thursday to approve an additional $330 million to fight the corona­virus pandemic and help people and businesses struggling financially.

The emergency package followed earlier passage of two separate measures of $200 million and $21 million, bringing the state's total response to more than $550 million to slow the spread of COVID-19. Legislative leaders said more may be in the offing.
