Walz Expresses Concern Over Surrounding State’s COVID Response
MINNEAPOLIS (St. Paul Pioneer Press) — Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz says he’s worried about neighboring states that have yet to issue stay-at-home orders to try and slow the spread of the coronavirus.
North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa were among a handful of states that did not have statewide orders in place as of Friday afternoon. Governors from those states said they have put a number of safeguards in place and many businesses are shut down.
Walz says it’s likely that he will extent Minnesota's order to the end of April.
