A further 14 people have died from the coronavirus in Minnesota.
It means that the total number of deaths in Minnesota is 1,040, well below the 1,400-2,000 deaths projected by the 3rd Version of the state's COVID-19 modeling at the end of May.
It should be noted that with it being a Sunday, some of the death data might not arrive until Monday or Tuesday due to a weekend reporting lag.
The figures as of 4 p.m. Saturday also show 555 people still hospitalized with COVID-19, of which 257 are in the ICU. This represents a fall on Saturday's figures.
A further 664 positive cases were confirmed, bringing the total so far to 24,850.
