Tuesday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows a continuing trend of declining positive tests, as just 299 of more than 6,700 tests came back positive. 

Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said Monday that Minnesota's COVID-19 situation may be plateauing, during which there could be days of lower totals followed by quick spikes in cases. It should also be noted that numbers Monday and Tuesday tend to be lower due to reporting delays from the previous weekend. 

In this case, there were 11 new deaths reported Monday and 20 on Tuesday, pushing the state's death toll in the past three months to more than 1,200. 

Of the 1,217 deaths, 968 have been residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities. 

The number of patients who are hospitalized, including in intensive care, remains fairly steady compared to Monday's report. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 360,991 (up from 354,226)
  • Confirmed cases: 28,523 (up from 28,224)
  • Deaths: 1,217 (up from 1,197)
  • Still hospitalized: 455 (up from 452)
  • Patients in intensive care: 199 (up from 198).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 24,221 (up from 23,657)

There have been 11 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.

Meanwhile, health officials are encouraging anyone who attended protests in recent days to go in for a COVID-19 test, and they recommend doing so whether you have symptoms or not.
