Data released on Thursday shows that COVID-19 case rates are going up statewide - and they're affecting younger Minnesotans, especially middle and high school students. In fact, the number of school-related COVID-19 cases reported this week in Minnesota students has now exceeded a peak during a surge of cases in November.

"The last month-plus has been very worrisome - especially among younger Minnesotans," said state Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm in a news release.

Still, Minnesota officials are not planning to issue sweeping recommendations or orders for schools to switch students to distance learning. Instead, they are ramping up testing opportunities in an attempt to make it easier for students to get weekly or biweekly COVID-19 tests.
