COVID-19 briefing by Gov. Tim Walz and state health officials.

Minnesota could see more COVID-19 restrictions this week, including a pause on youth and varsity athletics, to stem a surge in the pandemic that threatens to overwhelm hospitals and leave patients without care when needed.

COVID-19 hospitalizations have increased 93% since Nov. 1 - with Minnesota hospitals reporting on Monday a record 1,558 patients who were admitted to inpatient beds with the infectious disease. Nearly 30% of intensive care patients statewide now have COVID-19 - a rate that has nearly doubled over the past month.

"As we peak right now, I think it is obvious we are going to have to do more mitigation measures," Gov. Tim Walz said on Monday.
