Minnesota's COVID-19 Response Capacity

The State of Minnesota is committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of Minnesotans during the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with private and nonprofit sector partners, State of Minnesota leaders are working to ensure we are curbing the spread of COVID-19, supporting providers and facilities, and mitigating the impact on Minnesota families.

Below is an overview of the data tracked by the Governor’s COVID response team regarding capacities for hospital surge, critical care supplies, child care, and funding. Data for COVID case detail, economic and food security, details of Critical Care Supplies, Community Resiliency, and dial back indicators are also available.

This site will continue to be updated each weekday.
