While America waits to see what President Donald Trump decides to do with a $900 billion coronavirus relief package, vaccinations are ramping up in Minnesota.

Both Pfizer and Moderna have been approved by the FDA and it’s allowed Minnesota to start the vaccine rollout program, starting with first responders and frontline workers.

One source of concern, though – counterfeit N-95 masks. The state has been working with 3M to identify and destroy fake masks coming in from China. Alex Jokich shows us how the state was alerted to the phony masks and if the state is being charged for them.

Our political analysts say goodbye to 2020 and look ahead to the 2021 legislative session, which includes cobbling together a budget amid a global pandemic. 

We also look at a former cow barn that’s turned into a hockey rink. It’s partly due to the rising demand for plastic liners for backyard hockey rinks.
