The number of COVID-19 patients in Minnesota requiring intensive care rose to 36 on Monday. The state is seeing more hospitalizations as coronavirus spreads.

COVID-19 hospitalizations increased to 368 in Minnesota on Monday - the highest single-day count since March 7 - amid a continued increase in coronavirus spread across the state.

The total is well below the levels that exhausted hospital capacity earlier in the pandemic, but the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations requiring intensive care also increased from a recent low of 20 in late April to 36 on Monday.

State health officials encouraged Minnesotans to assess individual risks of viral transmission ahead of travels and group activities in the coming weeks, and to remain up to date with COVID-19 vaccine recommendations.
