Lewis visited Dead On Arms Indoor Shooting Range in Cloquet, London Road Rentals, and Duluth Surgical Suites.

Duluth Surgical Suites is currently open only on Fridays for emergency procedures.

“I appreciate him doing the tour with businesses in the area to find out how this COVID-19 outbreak has affected us,” Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Patrick Hall said, “We’d like to start getting patients the care they need in a safe, effective way, so hopefully we can come up with a plan that allows us to do that.”

Lewis said, "I think it's especially acute with these medical clinics. Here you have people waiting to get a biopsy in dire pain and suffering, and we're just telling them, 'just wait, just wait,' and that is not good medicine. And it's not being done by professionals like Dr. Hall, it's being done by politicians."

Lewis is challenging Democratic Senator Tina Smith in this November's election.
