The mass shootings throughout our nation in recent months due to gun violence are unfathomable. Today’s event in Tulsa again illustrates the staggering plague of gun violence.

MMA Statement Supporting Proof of Vaccination in Minneapolis and St. Paul
January 13, 2022
The more than 11,000 physician, resident, and medical student members, of the Minnesota Medical Association applaud the leadership of Minneapolis and St. Paul for taking the decisive yet temporary step to require patrons of restaurants, concerts, and other public venues that serve food and beverages to show proof of vaccination or negative test results. As the Omicron variant continues to spread and exacerbate pressure on hospital capacity and our already weary healthcare workers, we need strong measures such as this to curb this pandemic. We urge other communities across the state to consider similar temporary actions. The best defense against COVID-19 and serious complications remains vaccination and boosters. Well-fitted masks, social distancing, washing your hands, staying home when you’re sick, and getting tested if you have symptoms offer additional protection. These are all ways that Minnesotans can practice good health, protect your friends and loved ones, and demonstrate support for the thousands of healthcare workers who continue to selflessly care for patients on the front lines.

We urge other communities to consider similar actions. Wearing well-fitted masks is a valuable strategy in our ongoing fight to slow the spread of COVID-19 and the highly contagious omicron variant. The best defense against COVID-19 and serious complications remains vaccination and boosters. Well-fitted masks, social distancing, washing your hands, staying home when you’re sick, and getting tested if you have symptoms offer additional protection. These are all ways that Minnesotans can practice good health and demonstrate support for the thousands of the state’s healthcare workers who continue to selflessly care for patients on the front lines.
