This week on "At Issue with Tom Hauser," the commissioner of Minnesota's Department of Employment and Economic Development joins us to help answer your questions during the coronavirus pandemic.

DEED tells us 116,920 Minnesotans have applied for unemployment this week alone. 


We also take a look at the latest measures Gov. Tim Walz is taking in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

We ask our analysts how they think Minnesota's response to the pandemic is so far. 

Plus, a drive-by baby shower, a Facebook wedding and a driveway happy hour, we take a look at just a few ways Minnesotans are making the best of these difficult times.

Be sure to share your positive stories with us using #KSTPKindness on social media!
