Promising news of vaccines have given us much to hope for, but the work still remains to adequately respond to this virus. Recently, new resources and measures have been enacted, which you can read about below.
Balancing COVID Restrictions with Economic Relief
The recent surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the state has called for a new round of measures to help curb the spread of this virus. Similar to what we had experienced earlier this year, bars, restaurants, and gyms are now closed, and many events are paused - but with these measures there must also be economic relief to assist our community. My colleagues and I in the House DFL are working with Governor Walz to put forward a proposal of economic relief for Minnesota’s businesses and workers, which you can read more about here.
We’re moving to advance these measures, and hope to be in session to work on them as soon as next week.
