As a COVID-19 stay-at-home order continues, Governor Tim Walz is urging Minnesotans with medical conditions not COVID-related that require attention to be proactive. Walz says he’s troubled about…

“The danger of people not going in to see a doctor when they need to, because they’re concerned about COVID-19 or PPE, and I think we need to remind people, if you need to see a doctor, you need to see a doctor.”

State health officials are also urging Minnesotans who have dental emergencies to contact their dentists–rather than going to emergency rooms.
