Minnesota recorded five more COVID-19 deaths Monday and 82 new infections were reported by the state Department of Health.
Those whose deaths were reported Monday ranged in age from their 30s to their 70s. Four resided in private homes and one in a behavioral health facility.
The death toll is 7,587 since the pandemic began with 4,475 fatalities in long-term care facilities. Cases in long-term care facilities have fallen to some of the lowest levels of the pandemic thanks to more than 90 percent of seniors receiving at least one dose of vaccine.
Health officials have said nearly all new cases, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 are in residents who are not fully vaccinated.
There were fewer than 100 patients hospitalized as of June 25, the lowest number of patients needing care since April 2020.
The state’s death rate continues to trend at about five or six fatalities per day.
Minnesota has administered 5.6 million doses of vaccine and more than 3 million have gotten at least one shot. Nearly 67 percent of residents 16 and older have received one dose of vaccine and almost 64 percent have completed their vaccination series.
