The pandemic struck Minnesota in November unlike any month so far, accounting for half of all COVID-19 infections and one-third of the deaths.

"We are a hot spot," Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said.

Although some disease tracking indicators have inched down from highs earlier in November, Malcolm echoed recent warnings from the White House Coronavirus Task Force about a continued COVID-19 surge. "We really need to see sustained reductions in case growth and positivity rates to consider ... whether the tide is really turning or not," Malcolm said.
