Coming Up: Minn. health officials Malcolm, Ehresmann answer your questions about COVID vaccines, restrictions

While new daily cases of COVID-19 are dropping in Minnesota, many people who contracted the virus during the November surge remain hospitalized. Minnesota officials on Friday reported 2,737 new cases, less than half the number reported in mid-November. For the first time since late October, the percentage of tests coming back positive dropped below 10 percent. A rate below 5 percent indicates to public health officials that an outbreak is coming under control. Another 65 new deaths were reported Friday, though officials expect deaths to drop following the drop in infection rates.
