Walz calls on Minnesotans to hold the line on COVID-19
October 27, 2020
Gov. Tim Walz urged Minnesotans to stick with mask-wearing and social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 after conferring with a top White House official over the weekend and looking at troubling infection growth rates in bordering states.
"The next six to 12 weeks are going to be critical in this fight on COVID," Walz said Monday at a news conference.
Walz and state health officials struck perhaps their most concerning tone in weeks regarding the pandemic - with several meaningful metrics of the spread of the novel coronavirus going in the wrong direction.
