Minnesota statute 12.31 Subd. 2. reads: “Declaration of peacetime emergency. (a) The governor may declare a peacetime emergency. A peacetime declaration of emergency may be declared only when an act of nature, a technological failure or malfunction, a terrorist incident, an industrial accident, a hazardous materials accident, or a civil disturbance endangers life and property and local government resources are inadequate to handle the situation."
Not only does COVID not endanger life AND property, but many local governments, cities, and counties now have "adequate resources to handle the situation."

I support my County's independence and local control of its resources to combat COVID and declaring it has "adequate resources to handle the situation," which under MN Statute 12.31 Sub 2 means Governor Walz's executive orders will not apply to our County. Reopen my county!
