The Minnesota Department of Health has released the latest COVID-19 report and the statewide death total has reached 395 with 317 in long-term care or assisted living facilities.
The positive test results continued to climb in Polk County, up to 36 cases. The good news – Polk County hasn’t reported a COVID-19 related death. Marshall County is up to three positive cases, Norman County is reporting 8, Mahnomen and Clearwater are reporting two, and Red Lake, Pennington, Kittson, and Roseau counties are still reporting one case each. All the numbers are listed below.
Data is for cases that were tested and returned positive. Numbers are cumulative since Jan. 20, 2020. All data are preliminary and may change as cases are investigated. Many data points are collected during case interviews. Data presented below are for all cases, regardless of interview status. Data for cases pending interview may be listed as “unknown/missing”.
