ST. PAUL - New cases, positive test rates, deaths and hospitalizations for COVID-19 remained high in Minnesota Wednesday, Nov. 17, amid a steadily worsening wave of infections in the state.

Hospitalizations remain at their highest since December of last year, reaching 1,382, while test positivity rates and seven-day rolling average cases remained among the highest in the U.S. at 70.9 per 100,000 people.

Gov. Tim Walz on Wednesday said he had no plan to reinstate a state of emergency in Minnesota to combat COVID-19 as the state continued to rank among the top in the country for new cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
