Gov. Tim Walz: Business disruptions could last 18 months
April 21, 2020
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.
