Walz: Minnesotans must learn to live 'safely' amid ongoing COVID threat
August 27, 2021
Gov. Tim Walz says Minnesotans must learn to live well into the future with the lingering threat of COVID-19 - but not necessarily with the executive orders and mandates that dominated the early months of the pandemic.
"We've moved from pandemic to end-demic," Walz said Thursday in a wide-ranging interview. "What we've learned over the last 18 months is we're going to have to figure out smart ways to live with this into the future.
"I don't like to acknowledge it, but we're going to have to live with this for years."
