Governor Tim Walz today announced a COVID-19 action plan to relieve Minnesota’s increasingly crowded hospitals and provide new rapid testing opportunities for Minnesota families. As part of the plan, Walz is putting the National Guard on alert to provide staffing support at Minnesota’s long-term care facilities. Walz is also expanding access to the COVID-19 Emergency Staffing Pool, which allows long-term care facilities to request short-term emergency temporary staffing if they’re experiencing a staffing shortage due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at their facility. And Walz is directing the Department of Human Services to free up capacity at state long-term care facilities.
