8[/b]Gov. Tim Walz said Friday morning that a statewide “shelter in place” order is possible after Minnesota saw its number of confirmed COVID-19 cases soar past 100.

“Well, I certainly think it is a possibility,” the governor said during an interview with WCCO Radio. “We have to have every tool in the toolbox.”

The specifics of such an order can vary from state to state, but generally requires residents to remain indoors and limit outdoor activity to what is absolutely essential.

The governors of California, Illinois, and New York have issued shelter in place orders for their states. In a letter to President Donald Trump, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said the state projects “that roughly 56 percent of our population – 25.5 million people – will be infected with the virus over an eight-week period.”

Gov. Walz said the “modeling” for Minnesota shows that the numbers are “going to jump way up.” Indeed, Minnesota’s number of confirmed cases went from 89 to 115 between Thursday and Friday.



* So lets shut down the whole state! That makes a whole lot of sense. For the record the population of Mn. is just over 5.6 Million. In other words we're looking at A Rounding Error.
