Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota Erica MacDonald today jointly announced the formation of the Minnesota COVID-19 Action Team or MCAT.

“It’s a coordinated statewide effort focused on investigating and prosecuting unlawful activity associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and enforcing all state and federal laws and executive orders to put an end to such behavior. The MCAT urges the public to report any COVID-19-related criminal behavior, price-gouging, scams, cyber crimes, hate crimes, or other unlawful activity to the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office.”

Minnesotans with concerns or complaints about unlawful activity related to COVID-19 are encouraged to call 800-657-3787.
