(Air date: October 22, 2020)

The tourism industry has been significantly impacted by COVID-19. Today we hear from Xinyi (Lisa) Qian from the University of Minnesota Extension Tourism Center. We'll discuss the state of Minnesota’s tourism sector and how it is looking toward recovery.

In this special series, we are looking back on webinars and articles shared early during the pandemic and how that information needs to shift for our current reality.

“We need our local residents to be our best ambassadors.”
