At 11 a.m. Wednesday, the Minnesota Department of Health is giving an update on the modeling it has been using to inform its response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm and State Health Economist Stefan Gildemeister will give a briefing to the media on the model, which will be broadcast live on its YouTube page.

It's the first time the model has been updated since April 10, except for a minor addition on April 28 that looked at a model for Stay at Home being extended through the end of May. You can find the new model here, and watch below.
