Minnesota colleges offer hopeful sign in COVID-19 fight
October 28, 2020
COVID-19 infection numbers have declined at Minnesota's colleges and universities over the past month even as they have surged statewide.
Dashboards for colleges in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Winona, Mankato, and Moorhead showed similar COVID-19 spikes in late September followed by lower, but steady levels of infections in October.
Minnesota campus health officials said Tuesday that students are getting the message about mask-wearing and social distancing, and that rapid contact tracing and quarantines are preventing outbreaks from surging.
