ST. Tonight, cities and towns across the state will fight COVID-19 victims and pandemics as Paul-Minnesota reaches the tragic milestone of more than 3,000 lives lost to COVID-19. Dozens of Minnesota landmarks will be lit in purple to honor the news release.

Cities, towns, sports teams, museums, libraries, businesses and more can participate and residents can use the hashtag #MNtogether.

“When the times are tough, the Minnesotas stand up together,” Governor Tim Walz said in a release. “Tonight, the state-wide community gathers at a symbolic moment of unity to honor the people we lost and the workers at the forefront of this battle.”
