A statewide conversation with Minnesota’s Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan.  It is a time for all of us to learn about the State of Minnesota's response to this COVID-19 pandemic.   

This week the Lt Governor answered questions about students heading back to school, special session and the Governor's Emergency Powers and Tribal Government's leadership in transparency regarding the virus.  Plus, questions on the accuracy of the 2020 Census

As the Lt. Governor reminds us each week "You may be over the virus but the virus isn't over you."
