Bring Me the News: 22 bars, restaurants added to list of those linked to COVID-19 outbreaks


EXCERPT: “A further 22 bars have been added to the Minnesota Department of Health list of establishments linked to COVID-19 outbreaks since Aug. 20, which is when we last published the figures. The department has conducted 110 investigations into 103 restaurants for suspected coronavirus transmission among patrons. Of those investigations, 51 met the threshold for the definition of an outbreak, which means there were seven or more cases linked to this restaurant or bar.  It should be noted that this represents a fraction of the total bars and restaurants in Minnesota, and that many of the bars identified earlier in the year as having been linked to an outbreak have since had few to zero new cases.” FULL STORY:
