Legislative update

Friday, March 20, 2020

Dear Neighbor, 

The COVID-19 outbreak remains front and center. As of today, there have been 115 confirmed cases in Minnesota. We continue to combat the spread of the virus and set the conditions for a rapid recovery from the harm being caused.  

The governor has issued a dozen executive orders in the last week, including: 

  • Executive Order 20-10: Combatting Price Gouging During the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-11: Securing Federal Authority to Continue Human Services Programs During the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-12: Preserving Access to Human Services Programs During the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-09: Directing Delay of Inpatient and Outpatient Elective Surgery and Procedural Cases during COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-08: Clarifying Public Accommodations Subject to Executive Order 20-04 
  • Executive Order 20-07: Providing for State Workforce Needs During the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-06: Providing for Emergency Relief from Regulations to Motor Carriers and Drivers Operating in Minnesota 
  • Executive Order 20-05: Providing Immediate Relief to Employers and Unemployed Workers During the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-04: Providing for Temporary Closure of Bars, Restaurants, and Other Places of Public Accommodation 
  • Executive Order 20-03: Protecting Residents of Minnesota Veterans Homes during the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency 
  • Executive Order 20-02: Authorizing and Directing the Commissioner of Education to Temporarily Close Schools to Plan for a Safe Educational Environment 
  • Executive Order 20-01: Declaring a Peacetime Emergency and Coordinating Minnesota's Strategy to Protect Minnesotans from COVID-19. 

Note: As this is being written, the three most recent executive orders had not yet been posted to the governor's website. Click here for details on those 3 executive orders as they are posted.

The most important thing each of us can do is continue practicing common sense hygiene, wash our hands often, stay home as much as possible and be armed with accurate information. Here are three links I’d like to share once again: 

Minnesota Department of Health hotlines also are available to assist Minnesotans, including a public line (651) 201-3920 and a line for questions specifically related to schools and/or childcare (651) 297-1304. 

On a final note, please be aware scammers are trying to take advantage of fear and uncertainty. If it seems too good to be true, or if someone is coming to you with a sense of urgency regarding an investment, please take extra care. The Minnesota Department of Commerce encourages investors to contact the agency with any concerns or questions 651-539-1638 and online at securities.commerce@state.mn.us

Please be safe and considerate of others.
