Governor Tim Walz says he understands Minnesotans are feeling the strain of a stay at home order amid the coronavirus pandemic…

“I get it… I wish we could stop this today, I wish I could say, you know what it’s magically over, we can all go back to work, we can all go down to the restaurant or whatever, but that will kill people and it will, in the long run, it will hurt our economy at the same time.”

State health officials today announced that 79 Minnesotans have died from COVID-19 and nearly 17-hundred have tested positive for the virus.
