Minnesota at pivotal moment in COVID-19 pandemic, experts say

[KMSP Fox 9, June 24, 2020] While the daily number of COVID-19 cases isn’t rising as quickly as some other states in the U.S. there are still some alarms sounding as Minnesota continues to reopen.

Dr. Tim Sielaff, Allina Health chief medical officer, says Minnesota is at an important point in the pandemic as overall cases have leveled out, daily death totals and ICU hospitalizations are on the decline, but there’s been a slight uptick in hospitalizations, totaling 340 as of Wednesday.

“We have to be really attentive to what’s going on in our community and how we’re conducting ourselves and not forget the lessons we learned in March and April and May,” said Sielaff.
