On April 8, 2020, Gov. Tim Walz provided an update on the state's next steps to respond to COVID-19. He was joined by Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm.

To prevent "mass displacement" of struggling families and business closures, a coalition of local elected officials have asked Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz to suspend rent and mortgage payments and halt commercial property evictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Twenty-three elected officials - including a majority of the City Council members in Minneapolis and St. Paul - signed off on the request, which was sent to the governor earlier this month.
