The "Liberate Minnesota" rally, estimated by St. Paul police at about 800 protesters last week, was cheered by Republican leaders in Minnesota who have grown increasingly critical of record job losses that have followed the social distancing directives.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz warned Monday that social distancing practices brought on by the growing COVID-19 epidemic are likely to disrupt business in the state for a year or more no matter when his administration lifts its contested stay-at-home orders.

Speaking after meetings with state business leaders - as well as a conciliatory phone call with President Donald Trump - Walz said stores, restaurants and other public places will long have to adapt to public concerns about the coronavirus, likely until there's an effective vaccine.
