Walz to tweak stay-at-home restrictions as Minnesota battles COVID-19
April 8, 2020
Gov. Tim Walz is scheduled on Wednesday to announce a new "Minnesota way" of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic - a strategy that keeps what worked during the current two-week, stay-at-home order, but puts the state on track to remove some of the restrictions that contributed to job loss and economic pain.
"We have a chance, if we get this right, to avoid the worst of the things that you've seen happen in certain places," said Walz, referencing outbreaks that overwhelmed hospitals in New York City and Italy.
