After Minnesota’s health care workers and nursing home residents are vaccinated against COVID — probably early next year — who’s next in line? The federal government says “essential workers” — and the state Health Department’s Kris Ehresmann says she hopes they specify *who* is in that category:

“Some of the things that they have mentioned have been educators, utility, electric grid,… food supply workers…. First responders would be in that.”

If the federal government does not provide a highly-detailed list, it’s up to the states to work it out.
