ROCHESTER, Minn. - Gov. Tim Walz revisited the the state's coronavirus mitigation efforts on Wednesday, April 8, in an extraordinary press conference that was one part stay-at-home-extension pep talk, one part crash-course in epidemiology, and one part every-state-for-itself admonition that the federal government has not only failed to come to the state's aid where it was required to by law, it has begun to prevent the state from helping itself.

The hour began with a hopeful chart, continued with several that were less hopeful, and closed by refocusing on the arrival in coming weeks of newly approved serological finger-stick tests, game-changing information that could potentially tell Minnesotans in just minutes if they have antibodies for the coronavirus and are free to work.
