Thursday, protesters gathered once again outside the governor's residence in St. Paul, pushing back against the restrictions that remain in place in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Facebook, the group planning the protest stated, "Our government is trying to make this is your 'new normal.' Anytime government feels the need to quarantine you they will use this as an example of 'keeping you safe' and abuse this power."

Protesters gathered in a similar manner last month.
