According to a spokesperson, the cases relate to people who said they attended the fair during the period in which they were most likely exposed and infected. MDH expects the number of cases to climb in the coming days, since the fair ended on Monday.
The final day of the Minnesota State Fair saw 123,578 fairgoers walk through the gates, bringing the 12-day attendance total to 1,301,584. Labor Day's attendance was over 61,000 fewer people than 2019's record-setting final fair day.
The Minnesota State Fair's attendance on the second Sunday of the Great Minnesota Get-Together saw about the same amount of people walking through the gates as a Saturday. According to the data, 153,422 people attended on Sunday, about 500 shy of the amount of fairgoers that attended Saturday.
