Gov. Tim Walz said Tuesday that he was prepared to extend restrictions closing schools and limiting many businesses because of the coronavirus pandemic and wouldn’t set a date for when life in Minnesota would return to normal.
Yet so far, the Democratic governor has resisted ordering residents to “shelter in place.” “I think people need to hear the truth on this,” Walz said Tuesday via conference call. “There’s not going to be a day, when you shelter in place, the all-clear signal goes off, everybody comes out and they don’t get it. That isn’t the way it is going to work.”
