Minnesota's 'rogue grandparents' are defying CDC recommendations to see their grandkids



Ricé Davis spent time with her 3-year-old twin grandsons, Jude and Murphy, and their mother, Maggie.

Epidemiologist Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, is sought out by journalists, scientists and policymakers who consider him one of the world's most insightful experts on COVID-19.

But for five Twin Cities kids, he's just Grandpa.

Summers have been a time to make memories for Osterholm, 67, and his grandchildren, who range in age from 2 to 10. This summer, though, he's only seen them twice since March, and only then from a proper 6-foot distance.
