Health officials say approximately 1,247,867 Minnesotans have been tested for the virus so far. Nearly 10,000 were completed in the last 24 hours.

As Minnesota is capable of processing up to 20,000 tests each day, health officials are monitoring the state’s positivity rate. According to the “Dial Back Dashboard,” Minnesota’s positivity rate has hovered around 5% since the start of the month.

If the rate were to soar to 15% or climb 5% over 14 days, health officials would consider tightening COVID-19 restrictions.
