The World Health Organization says that a 14-day positive test rate of below 5 percent is the key to keeping businesses open. Minnesota’s 7-day rolling average, as of Monday, was 4.40%, according to Johns Hopkins University.

“If you go above 5 percent it indicates that you may be heading back into a phase of more rapid spread of the disease,” said MDH Commissioner Jan Malcolm.

Iowa (8.70%), Wisconsin (7.49%), North Dakota (5.65%) and South Dakota (5.76%) are all testing at a higher positive rate than Minnesota over the past seven days, per the Johns Hopkins data.

Hospitalized patients jumped from 247 to 266, though the number of COVID-19 patients in ICU dropped by three from 115 to 112.
