COVID-19 indicators nudge up ahead of Minnesota winter
November 4, 2022
Some key indicators of COVID-19 activity worsened in Minnesota over the past week, but health officials aren't sure they spell more trouble for the state.
Mayo Clinic's 14-day forecast shows an uptick over the next two weeks in infections with the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, but it only brings Minnesota back to the relatively mild pandemic levels of early September.
"For the most part, the model is not predicting a huge rise in the next month," said Curtis Storlie, a co-creator of the Mayo COVID-19 forecast. "As always, the more people that do their part by getting their COVID booster this fall will decrease the chance of any substantial rise in cases ... and help keep COVID out of the spotlight this winter."
