A small, bipartisan group of state legislators encouraged Minnesotans on Monday to pledge to take personal steps to curb the spread of the coronavirus as the holidays approach.

The new public education campaign, announced on Zoom, encourages individuals to wear masks, limit social gatherings and take other actions to reduce exposure, regardless of their political views.

"It's important to recognize that Republicans and Democrats don't have to fight about everything, just some things," said Rep. Pat Garofalo, R-Farmington. "As we're going forward with COVID-19, it's really going to take cooperation from all of us to make a difference and defeat this."
