I was really happy to see a friend's Facebook post on the COVID-19 status in MN. While I do track that statistics in the state I hadn't noticed this trend.
"If you want to track Covid cases in MN, this is the site I follow. What's key (in my mind) are the hospitalized ICU and hospitalized non-ICU patient numbers in the graph. Though the other numbers trickle upwards (i.e deaths), the hospitalized totals have gone down since about May 23rd. This is what MN was trying to do by encouraging masks and distancing–flattening the curve. Unlike other states, this has worked–at least since the end of May. Congratulations to the Governor and the people who have followed his lead. Hopefully MN keeps it up over July 4th!!" https://www.twincities.com/coronavirus-mn/cases-map/
