November 18, 2020
Gov. Tim Walz is expected to announce on Wednesday new restrictions on bars, restaurants, social gatherings and gyms and fitness centers, as well as youth sports, in response to the surge in COVID-19 cases in the state.
"Community spread is rampant now in Minnesota," Walz said in a press briefing Tuesday. "The idea that we can just go on the way we have is simply not sustained by the facts."
The governor's office confirmed that new restrictions would be announced but did not provide details.
