Dr. Nick Lehnertz, MN Department of Health Infectious Disease Epidemiologist

His current interests are using epidemiology and genomic sequencing to understand SARS-CoV-2 transmission patterns, clinical characteristics of pre-symptomatic infection in residents of long-term care facilities, and reinfections with SARS-CoV-2.
