Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Tuesday, June 30

Minnesota is approaching four months since its first case was confirmed.

Deaths, hospitalizations, and ICU cases relating to COVID-19 all dropped in the latest figures provided by the Minnesota Department of Health.

After deaths on Monday hit double figures for the first time in more than a week, they dropped again to six in Tuesday's data. Of those, two were in long-term care facilities.

COVID-19 patients requiring care in the hospital dropped to 270, of which those in ICU has dipped to 136 from 140 on Monday.

There are 444 new cases in Monday's report, two of which have been removed for an official tally of 442. Cases are removed for a variety of reasons, including patients being from another state and false positive test results. 

This represents an increase on the 312 positives in Monday's figures, but there was also a significant rise in testing, up from around 7,500 on Monday to 12,700 on Tuesday.

Gov. Tim Walz said that Minnesota now has the capacity to conduct 20,000 diagnostic COVID-19 tests per day.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests:  605,316 (up from 592,955)
  • Confirmed cases: 36,303 (up from 35,861)
  • Deaths: 1,441 (up from 1,435)
  • Still hospitalized: 270 (down from 278)
  • Patients in intensive care: 136 (down from 140)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 31,601 (up from 31,225)

There have been 35 patients deemed to have "probably" died from COVID-19, though that total isn't included in the aforementioned death toll. Those cases represent victims who never received a COVID-19 test, but for whom doctors believe within a reasonable degree of certainty that the virus caused their death.
