(no paywall issues or quota issues for NY Times coronavirus coverage)

Scroll down to the "Cases and deaths by state and county" table.
Sort it by the "per 100,000" column that follows the "cases in last 7 days" column

Minnesota is #23 on this list (slightly more cases per capita than the median state)

Here are our U.S. neighbors ranked according to daily new cases per 100,000 (7 day moving average)

#1 North Dakota, #2 South Dakota, #3 Wisconsin, #6 Iowa

Yes, these are their rankings out of all 50 states. Rough neighborhood.

It gives new meaning to the slogan, "Stay Home, Minnesota"

I don't know the situation with our Canadian neighbors. Wouldn't be surprised if they were building a wall.

Minnesota details: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/minnesota-coronavirus-cases.html

Minnesota visited 9/20/20 11pm: Daily new cases 7 day moving average:
05/26: 704 (1st wave peak)
06/12: 405 (bars/restaurants open for indoor seating)
09/02: 836 (all time peak)
09/12: 530 (recent bottom)
09/19: 733 (latest)

During and after the Labor Day weekend (9/5-9/7) we had a modest number of new cases and the averages fell. Also the number of tests was unusally low during that period.

Then in the last 4 days we've had both a big increase in tests and a big increase in cases -- 4 days in a row above 1,000 cases.

Positivity rates in Minnesota are at a low 3.9%
