Minnesota's 7-day average COVID test positivity rate is up to 6.7%, matching the spring 2021 peak. It's up 1 percentage point over the past week, just when it seemed Minnesota was at a plateau. pic.twitter.com/LYrj5mOCso
Back in Minnesota, #Browns coach Kevin Stefanski told me last night he didn’t even leave the hotel (standard in COVID times). But he did get one of his go-to spots, @RevivalFriedChx, to cater team dinner. He joked (?): “I need to work out basically, because I got after it.”
As the Delta surge moves North, we're seeing the same pattern we saw in the South: highly vaccinated counties with lower COVID case rates. Check out the comparatively low case rates in highly vaccinated counties like Hennepin MN, Dane WI, Washtenaw MI, and Delaware OH. pic.twitter.com/qoxJMQIIwE

MDH said the clinic will provide outpatient treatment for qualifying people with mild to moderate symptoms who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days and who are at high risk of their illness leading to hospitalization or death.
The new clinic, located near Interstate 35E and Arlington Avenue West, will not be open to walk-ins. Instead, people who have tested positive for COVID-19 are asked to contact their healthcare provider or go to the website for the Minnesota Resource Allocation Platform to make an appointment.
Monoclonal antibodies are antibodies made in a lab that act like natural antibodies to limit the amount of virus in a patient's body. The antibodies are administered via IV infusion. For COVID-19 patients, the treatment can stop them from getting even sicker and may help shorten the amount of time they are sick.
There are about 80 locations for the treatment statewide with about 10 in the metro, including the new St. Paul site, according to an MDH spokesperson.
MDH on Tuesday reported 7.133 additional cases of COVID-19 and 12 more deaths attributed to the disease. The new cases and deaths bring the state's total number of cases and deaths to 725,451 and 8,203 respectively. The state's 7-day average test positivity rate has increased to 7.2%, well above the state's caution threshold.
