Coronavirus in Minnesota

Taxonomy Header ImageTaxonomy Header Image
Just as many Minnesotans were dreaming up hopes, resolutions and adventures in the early months of 2020, the coronavirus crisis escalated from global epidemic to pandemic and eventually took hold in our state. As we learn how to work and play differently, how to express compassion and care differently, how to grapple with loss and fear differently, Twin Cities PBS aims to capture our very human experience in these stories about the impact of COVID-19 in Minnesota. If you need escape from the swirl of virus-focused news, then you can always stream your favorite local and national shows on TPT.org. In the meantime, we present to you an ever-evolving collection focused on the coronavirus in this place we all call home. We have additional local, national and global resources on COVID-19 on our show page for our weekly broadcast series, Coronavirus: An Almanac Special, which airs on TPT2 at 8 pm on Friday nights.
