In a letter to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, ULTC President Steven Belton called on the state to provide a comprehensive and accurate assessment of COVID-19’s impact on African Americans in order to limit the duration and severity of this pandemic. Belton called on the Governor, as well as Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan and the Commissioner of Health Jan Malcolm to publicly release de-identified/aggregate demographic data, including race, on who has received COVID-19 diagnostic testing, who has tested positive, and the clinical disposition of those who tested positive, including recovery and death.

Said Belton, “We must act now to save lives.”
