“Every Minnesotan has a responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19, and almost all Minnesotans have been doing their part. Vaccines are helping us make great progress — if people continue to observe all laws and precautions, and if they get vaccinated, which is an act of care not only for themselves but for their communities. People are free not to be vaccinated if they wish, but they should not be free to fake their vaccination status. These companies must do their part to keep them from doing so.”
