St Paul  (KROC AM News) - Among the latest to contract the Covid virus is Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison.

He announced Wednesday he contracted the virus while visiting family in another country.

 

Ellison said he had no idea he was infected until he took a mandatory test Tuesday as he was getting ready to catch his flight back to Minnesota. He said he later came down with mild cold-like symptoms and will be in isolation until he’s cleared for another flight. Ellison says he will be able to work remotely while in isolation.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and his family tested positive a few weeks ago and had to hunker down at home during the holidays.
