We are writing to encourage you to use the considerable influence of your office as our Senator and as the Senate Majority Leader to do what you can to help bring the COVID-19 pandemic in our communities under control.

As you know, the impact on our communities is considerable. Our schools have closed, local businesses are suffering and our hospitals have reached maximum capacity. It may not be long before we see rationed care and emergency field hospitals as in Wisconsin. Our regional health provider, CentraCare, can no longer accept COVID-19 transfers in St. Cloud because it is full and has lost over 800 of its health workers to COVID-19 illnesses and issues.
