Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz announced Thursday that the Stay At Home order in Minnesota will be extended to May 18.
A previous order was set to expire Monday.
From building out critical hospital capacity to launching a landmark testing strategy, Minnesota has made meaningful progress in preparing for the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Gov. Walz said. “Minnesotans have made this possible by staying home and holding down the rate of infection. But now is not the time for sudden movements. There’s more work to be done, and we need to keep this virus at a simmer, not a boil. Our action today prioritizes the safety of Minnesotans while taking cautious, strategic steps toward getting people safely back to work.”
It was also announced that starting May 4, retail businesses and other non-critical businesses may begin offering curbside pick-up.
