We haven’t heard the end of this, I would bet.


I fear you are correct. And I live only a few miles from the airport. Needless to say, I won’t go anywhere near it tomorrow.

And as predicted, Trump is trying to weasel his way around the agreement with the city. The agreement was to issue only 250 passes for people to attend. Instead, the campaign apparently let people 'register' with the first 250 getting in. Which of course would mean miles and miles of cars full of people thinking they would get in, and fully intending to get in. And Trump tweeted this morning that he plans to have 25,000 people there.

Should be interesting to see if the city responds to this (fully expected) breach of the agreement, and whether it sticks by its plans to set up a perimeter to keep those cars away from the airport property itself....

In the end, Rochester officials stuck to their guns and limited the crowd to 250 people. Not surprisingly, Trump saw it as a Democrat conspiracy and left the podium much more quickly than he typically does.

https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/10/30/us/trump-biden-election#trump-in-minnesota-lashes-out-at-democrats-for-limiting-crowd-sizes

Angry at restrictions on gatherings in Minnesota that prevented him from speaking in front of a large crowd of supporters, President Trump, campaigning in the city of Rochester, stalked off the stage after less than 30 minutes at his final stop of the day Friday.
...
Mr. Trump, who greeted supporters along a rope line ahead of the rally, left the stage without his usual finishing flourishes, where he talks about “winning, winning, winning” and dances to “Y.M.C.A.” by the Village People.

The only way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him. Way to go, Rochester!

Nice to see that the leaders in Rochester and Minnesota actually believe that all life matters.

Would be nice if the emperor did, too, but I guess that ship sailed about a zillion lies ago.

Wow - a new high of 5,454 new cases today. We had been avoiding some of the meteoric rises they've seen in WI, ND, SD and IA up to now, but it seems our (relatively) good fortune has run out....

I think it is so widespread, and with everyone going indoors, that its getting out of control everywhere.

Agreed. State-specific policies and practices may help, but we are at a stage where it's just varying degrees of bad.

All you can do is stay safe and keep your family safe. There is a percent of the population that won’t even attempt to stay safe, so all we can do is avoid those people.

After weeks of keeping new infection rates lower than WI and other border states, the dam is bursting in MN.

Another 7,228 cases reported today.

Just found out this evening that my brother just got over COVID out in Minnesota. Which explains why haven't heard from him in 2 weeks.  Supposedly caught from his sister-in-law's husband next door who in turn caught it from his 98 year old mother.

Another 8,703 new cases in MN today...just a few days after breaking 5,000 seemed horrible.

Are they moving towards a shutdown?  Or what is the status at the moment?  I have to believe states are going to start shutting down across the country

I have not heard talk of a full lockdown, but I hope that changes soon.

There have been a few recent steps. Bars and restaurants are now required to close by 10pm.; schools in all the major cities (incl. MPLS, St. Paul, Rochester, Bloomington, Duluth) and many suburban districts are now exclusively distance learning; and private functions like wedding receptions will soon be capped at 25 (down from 50).

IMO, these steps might have been adequate a few weeks ago, but we waited too long. Our 7-day average numbers are now approaching those of the Dakotas, Iowa and Wisconsin...and that's way too high. Hospitals are filling up quickly, and many facilities (including Mayo) are back to restricting elective visits and procedures. We are on the verge. No time for half-measures....

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/tim-walz-minnesota-governor-covid-19-cases-news-conference-watch-live-stream-today-2020-11-13/

> Starting Friday, indoor and outdoor private social gatherings will be limited to no more than 10 people from a maximum of three households, Walz said. Bars and restaurants will be limited to 50% capacity both indoors and outdoors with a maximum of 150 people. Dine-in service will end at 10 p.m. although delivery after that time can continue.

> The restrictions were announced after hospitals expressed concern about their capacity to treat people with COVID-19, according to the governor's office.

The governor was apologetic about ordering even these minor restrictions. While hospitals are filling up and caretakers are concerned. MN is in for a bumpy ride along with its neighbors.

Another article I read is that there are 10x more nurse job openings right now than normal because nurses are walking off the job and not coming back.

Agreed, given that people obviously need to take their masks off in restaurants and bars.

Governor Walz expected to announce 4-week closure of bars, restaurants and other non-essential businesses as of close of business Friday. The formal announcement is expected at 6pm, but it is being widely reported as a #donedeal.

https://www.mprnews.org/story/2020/11/18/walz-announces-new-measures-to-curb-covid19

Gov. Tim Walz on Wednesday is expected to roll out new curbs intended to stem the spread of COVID-19, including limiting bars and restaurants to takeout-only for four weeks, a source tells MPR News.

Gyms and fitness centers will also be closed for that duration, the source said. The new order will also affect theaters, bowling alleys and museums.

MN is joining a growing number of states rolling out Covid app, which notifies you if you have a potential exposure.

https://www.mprnews.org/story/2020/11/23/walz-to-announce-technology-to-help-spread-slow-of-covid19

From what I can tell, this isn't available in WI, IL or most other upper midwest states, so I assume not many here have used such an app? The idea is pretty cool, but it seems about 6 months late IMO....
