“Testing is a key component of our strategy to protect Minnesotans from COVID-19,” said Minnesota Commissioner of Health jan Malcolm. “Through a robust, collaborative statewide testing program, we have made great progress in removing obstacles to testing. When combined with social distancing, masking, avoiding crowds, and staying home when sick, testing can help us slow the spread of COVID-19 and bridge to the better days we know are coming.”

It will be a drive-thru testing site, and people will self-administer a nasal swab test. The site has the capacity to administer 10,000 tests over the course of the six days.

Testing is open to anyone who believes they need a COVID test, with or without insurance. Appointments are strongly encouraged, but not required.
