Monday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health includes 483 newly reported cases and nine newly reported deaths. The state's COVID-19 death toll is now 12,289.

Today's update includes case data that was reported in a 72-hour period ending at 4 a.m. Monday, Mar. 14, but MDH notes that "not all cases from the weekend were able to be included" in Tuesday's report, so the number of new cases is "lower than it should be" for a Tuesday.

These missing cases will ultimately be reported Wednesday.

Minnesota's test positivity rate on a 7-day rolling average (through March 7) was 3.2%, having been as high as 23.7% on Jan. 21. Anything over 10% puts Minnesota in the high-risk threshold for community transmission of the coronavirus.


Through Mar. 14, the number of people with COVID-19 hospitalized in Minnesota was 306 – up from the 298 reported on Mar. 13. Of those hospitalized, 42 people are in intensive care (up from 38) and 264 are in non-ICU care (up from 260).
