COVID-19 exposure puts Minnesota Gov. Walz in quarantine


March 18, 2021


Gov. Tim Walz is going to quarantine through March 25 because a member of his staff tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday.

Gov. Tim Walz is postponing his State of the State address and submitting to quarantine through March 25 following a positive COVID-19 test of a staff member.

The quarantine is a conservative precaution after Walz, Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan and Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm were in the same location as the infected individual during a news conference on Monday.

All agreed to quarantine, even though none had been within 6 feet of the infected person for 15 minutes - which is the threshold for a moderate viral exposure risk. The staffer was tested Tuesday and received results Wednesday.
