Of the 20 infected people who attended the conference in Finlayson, a spokesman tells the Star Tribune, none were hospitalized.

The outbreak comes as Minnesota is experiencing widespread transmission of the coronavirus.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Minnesota state employees who’ve been working from home during the pandemic were informed this week that they’ll most likely continue telecommuting at least through the end of the school year in June.
