The department stated 33,894 tests have been completed, including 9,185 through the Minnesota Department of Health’s public health lab and 24,709 through external laboratories. Not all suspected cases are tested, so this data is not representative of the total number of people in Minnesota who have or had COVID-19.

Data is current through 4 p.m. the previous day.

Confirmed cases also grew by one in Winnebago County to a total of two cases. Iowa has a confirmed 1,388 cases.
