Minnesota health officials say the number of cases of the coronavirus has risen to 35 as of Sunday afternoon in the state, and now includes a rural county.
Among the new cases is a person in their 30s in Renville County, in southwestern Minnesota. Wright and Washington counties also report new cases.
It is important to note that all but one of Minnesota’s patients are currently recovering at home. A patient in Anoka County was in critical condition earlier in the week.
On Friday Gov. Tim Walz declared a peacetime state of emergency to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
