Serious measures for a serious
The steep spike in COVID-19 cases in Minnesota, including Brown County, are callling for more serious measures to help stop the spread.
Gov. Tim Walz is expected to announce new measures today, which could impact bars, restaurants, gyms and health clubs, youth sports and other activities.
District 88 Superintendent Jeff Bertrang announced Tuesday that the district will be going to distance learning for all grades, starting Nov. 30.
The numbers are not receding. On Tuesday, the Minnesota Department of Health reported 26 more deaths due to COVID and 5,945 newly confirmed cases. The number of people hospitalized reached a new high as well, with 1,669 people in hospitals, with 346 needing intensive care.
We must all do our part to stem this runaway trend.
