Governor Announces Special Session, Summer Survey

Friday, July 10, 2020


Rep. Pryor


Please take a couple of minutes to fill out my summer survey about relevant issues in our community and state. Your input is important – thank you! Click on this link:


Special Session next Monday

Governor Walz has called our second special session for this Monday, July 13. Among unfinished business up for consideration is the bonding bill, police accountability measures and COVID-19 related items to protect the health and safety of Minnesotans. I look forward to making progress on issues that impact so many throughout the state.


  • Everyone can work to reduce the spread of COVID-19
    • Wear masks when in public. 10-50% of virus carriers are asymptomatic (are not experiencing any symptoms). Wearing masks helps control the virus and has been shown to lower COVID-19 spread. 
    • Avoid enclosed spaces with groups of people, where the virus can linger in the air for long periods of time.
    • Get tested if you have cold or flu-like symptoms - Find testing locations.
    • Stay six feet away from others.
    • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or sleeve, or a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands afterwards.
    • Washing your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom or before eating. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
    • Avoid touching your face – especially your eyes, nose and mouth – with unwashed hands.
    • Up-to-date guidance is available from the Department of Health.


Please continue to reach out with any input, ideas, or feedback about the issues important to you. I value hearing from you, so please don’t hesitate to call or email me any time. You can also connect with me on Facebook here. It’s an honor to represent you at the State Capitol.
