Department of Health Releases COVID-19 Modeling Information

Today, the Minnesota Department of Health launched a website sharing details about its COVID-19 modeling to better inform the public of what information contributes to decision-making and explain why guidance like social distancing is critical to protect the health of Minnesotans.

The website provides an overview as to what the Minnesota model predicts, how it was created, why the model is important, and what to expect next.

The Senate COVID-19 Response Working Group is also scheduled to meet remotely on Monday to review a variety of proposals relating to health, human services, courts, transportation, and local government.
On Tuesday, the House and Senate will convene for floor sessions in their respective chambers. Both bodies are likely to pass legislation responding to state needs related to COVID-19.
