Social distancing is difficult, and staying at home can be even harder.

KARE 11 is in this with you as we work to flatten the curve, and slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

It's not possible for everyone to stay home, and we're thankful for health care workers and those who provide essential services. Those who are able to stay home, are helping to keep them safer. Gov. Tim Walz said this week that the data is beginning to show that Minnesotans are having an impact on the infection rate of coronavirus because of social distancing.

Our teams have been gradually going "remote" over the last weeks, and now nearly everyone at KARE is working from home. Show us what your slightly more confined life looks like with #StayHomeMN!

Here are some snapshots of ours:

  • OK, the age of the colleagues is getting a little out of control. Jennifer Austin, please get yourself another photographer.
