ST. PAUL - Leaders of Minnesota hospital systems are pleading with the public to get vaccinated for COVID-19 and to take precautions such as wearing a mask as hospitalizations for the virus remain at record highs for 2021.

CEOs of nine Minnesota health systems, including Essentia Health, the Mayo Clinic and Centra Care purchased full-page advertisements in newspapers across the state calling for the public to take the virus more seriously.

"We're heartbroken. We're overwhelmed" the full-page ad begins. "Our emergency departments are overfilled, and we have patients in every bed in our hospitals."
