Cases are expected to surge when the stay-at-home order ends, and testing along with contact investigations will be needed, said Kris Ehresmann, the state's infectious disease director.

Minnesota health officials are preparing for what's next after the end of a statewide stay-at-home order to limit the spread of COVID-19, even if they don't yet know when the end is going to be.

The Minnesota Department of Health is on track by week's end to employ 460 contact investigators to identify cases early and try to keep small COVID-19 clusters from exploding among entire businesses or communities.
