With Stay At Home order about to expire, Walz to announce what’s next for Minnesota

April 30, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesotans will learn today (Thursday) to what extent the state will loosen the stay-at-home restrictions that have kept the state’s economy on ice for just over a month.

Gov. Tim Walz’s order is due to expire Monday.

Walz indicated at a news conference in Worthington on Wednesday that his plan is to dial back the restrictions slowly instead of risking a huge surge in COVID-19 cases.

He acknowledged that one of the hardest things for Minnesotans has been the uncertainty over everything.

He gave no specifics on which restrictions he’ll ease next, or by how much.
