Hospitalizations for COVID-19 are steadily increasing, now at the highest they have been since mid-January.
Despite the increasing cases, and concerns over another wave of COVID-19, Governor Tim Walz has said he doesn't have any plans for another set of COVID-19 restrictions. Instead, he and other governors are pushing for the Biden administration to prioritize states that are facing a new increase in cases for COVID-19 doses.
