Children's Minnesota has a tentative agreement to furlough the equivalent of 181 full-time nurses as the state's largest pediatric hospital struggles with the financial effects of COVID-19.

Surgery cases and emergency-room visits are down significantly at Children's, which announced earlier this week that it would stop offering some medical and surgical services at its St. Paul campus because of a decrease in patients.
