We stand with Minnesotans in fighting for racial justice. Our society's continued struggle with violence and racism – particularly structural racism – is a fundamental public health challenge. It is also our responsibility to remind people participating in community events to take steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. Stay home if sick, try to stay 6 feet from others, wear a mask, and get tested. https://www.health.state.mn.us/news/pressrel/2020/statement052920.html

Have symptoms? Get tested.

With Minnesota's COVID-19 testing plan, anyone with symptoms should get tested. This helps us better understand how the disease is spreading. Clinic testing capacity can change day to day, so call ahead. Check your symptoms and find a testing location at https://mn.gov/covid19/for-minnesotans/if-sick/. #StaySafeMN

Mask up, Minnesota!

COVID-19 spreads through droplets when a sick person coughs or sneezes. They can land on the mouths and noses of people within 6 feet, and also on surfaces that people touch. Wash your hands often, wear a mask, and stay home when sick. https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/prevention.html

Have symptoms? Get tested.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested. Symptoms can include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, headache, muscle pain, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. Other less common symptoms include gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Not everyone with COVID-19 has all of these symptoms, and some people may not have any symptoms.
