Governor Tim Walz’s emergency powers during the COVID-19 pandemic have been extended for another 30 days. The Minnesota Executive Council granted the extension Wednesday. The council, all Democrats, said that the need for the powers is “compelling” since coronavirus numbers aren’t falling very fast. The governor has insisted that the emergency powers have made differences in handling the pandemic and will still help stop the rapid spread of the virus.
