Watonwan County has administered more than 1,727 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, as cases continue to steadily rise in the state, according to data from the Minnesota Department of Health.

That's up 8.34% from the previous week's tally of 1,594 COVID-19 doses administered.

In the latest week, Minnesota reported 476,292 cases of coronavirus, an increase of 0.94% from the week before.

Gov. Tim Walz recently set a statewide goal to have all K-12 students back in classrooms full time by March 8.

Expanded COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts for school staff and a low growth in cases in early 2021 have put the state on track to reopen by the deadline.
