Here's the latest on COVID-19 from Governor Walz's press conference on 3/13/20, at which he stated that schools will remain open. Reason cited were:
- There is almost no evidence of student-to-student transmission
- 35% of nurses & health care workers have children in schools, so care might be impacted if those folks are home with their kids
- Other countries experience is that closing schools hasn't worked
- MN cases show no transmission except by people who have traveled
