Gov. Walz Extends Peacetime Emergency Once Again

Following the advice of public health experts, senior advocates, labor leaders, doctors, hospitals and long term care providers, Governor Tim Walz, on Monday, extended the COVID-19 peacetime emergency in Minnesota.  By signing the executive orders, Walz extended the peacetime emergency that gives the state flexibility in responding to rapidly evolving issues stemming from COVID-19.

 

Walz said; “My top priority remains the health and safety of Minnesotans,” and “As we watch cases rise dramatically in states around us, we must double down in our efforts to protect Minnesota from the spread of the virus.”
