UPDATE 10 A.M.
The governor's office has said the in-person press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. is now being replaced for a press call at the same time.
No reason for the change has been given, but Walz will still be joined by several people who have been impacted by COVID-19.
Among those appearing will be former GOP state Rep. Nick Zerwas, who recently had a serious bout of the virus that required a hospital stay.
Gov. Tim Walz will address Minnesotans again on Tuesday, this time joined by people who've been impacted by COVID-19.
This will be the second consecutive day Walz has held a news conference to discuss the surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the state, something the governor has rarely done since the early days of the pandemic.
This comes as cases and hospitalizations are skyrocketing – Minnesota added 26,000 new cases over the past three days – reaching levels beyond what the Minnesota Department of Health could have imagined, Commissioner Jan Malcolm said Monday.
During Tuesday's 2 p.m. briefing, Gov. Walz will be joined by Minnesotans impacted by COVID-19 to "highlight the seriousness of the virus and call on Minnesotans to take action to protect themselves and their loved ones."
You'll be able to watch it on the governor's YouTube channel here.
On Monday, Walz was joined by frontline healthcare workers who detailed how dire the situation is in hospitals across the state, with beds filling up and workers getting burned out.
The governor said Monday he would announce new restrictions relating to prep sports and athletics aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19 "in the next day or so" amid a surge in cases among high school and youth sports teams.
Also during Monday's news conference, MDH officials urged people to celebrate Thanksgiving with only their immediate households, noting last week's guidance that said gatherings of 10 or fewer people from three or fewer households was OK now presents a much higher risk.
