Coronavirus in Minnesota: 17 more deaths; free testing continues 2020-05-24

Seventeen more Minnesotans have died of COVID-19, the Minnesota Department of Health said Sunday, for a total of 869.

Minnesota is offering free COVID-19 testing at six sites across the state this weekend, starting Saturday and going through Monday.

The Stay Safe Order encourages Minnesotans to stay close to home but allows gatherings of friends and family of 10 people or less, if proper social distancing measures—like staying six feet apart and wearing a mask—are taken. The order also further opens retail stores and other Main Street businesses if they have a preparedness plan and operate at 50 percent occupancy.

The COVID-19 pandemic presents an unprecedented danger to Minnesotans. The Stay Safe Order is a slow turn on the dial to introduce more interaction between people over time. It is a cautious step forward, as we all continue to do our part to slow the spread of the virus and continue to protect and support those most at risk and workers, who are on the frontlines of this pandemic.

Community spread of COVID-19 in Minnesota and nationwide is increasing. There are hotspots in both rural and urban communities. We are working hard to ensure adequate hospital space for those who need it. By limiting the size of group gatherings, and slowly turning the dial to reopen our state’s businesses, we will limit the spread of COVID-19 in our communities across every corner of the state.
