Governor Tim Walz to give State of the State address on Sunday

The annual address was rescheduled after the governor was exposed to COVID-19.

Gov. Tim Walz's rescheduled State of the State address will be held on Sunday, March 28 at Mankato High School. 

Walz's address was originally scheduled for March 21, but after he was exposed to COVID-19 on March 17, he postponed the address to quarantine for 10 days per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. 

The governor will give the annual State of the State address from his former classroom at Mankato High School, where he taught social studies before entering politics. 

The address will begin at 6 p.m. and will be streamed live on the governor's YouTube page here

The governor's quarantine is due to end on Thursday, March 25, after he, Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan and Minnesota Department of Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm were possibly exposed after one of Walz's staff members tested positive for COVID. 

Walz has yet to be vaccinated, while Flanagan at the time of exposure had one dose of the vaccine and Malcolm had gotten the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine but was still within the 14-day period before it achieved full efficacy.
