The Coronavirus pandemic has really taken the world by surprise. In just a few short months, global affairs have taken a dramatic turn of events both economically and medically. I wish I could say that the good residents of Minnesota weren't effected by this whole situation, but unfortunately we are just a susceptible as the rest of the world.

The numbers of people testing positive for the COVID-19 here in Minnesota is ever rising. As of March 26th, the total number of confirmed cases in Minnesota is at 346.

Of those, 134 thankfully no longer need to be isolated. The total number of cases requiring hospitalization in the state to date is 41, with 31 being currently hospitalized.

Hopefully by quarantining and social distancing we can start to mitigate the spread of the virus so those numbers don't skyrocket.
