Testing opportunities

  • The Minnesota Department of Health encourages the following groups to get tested regularly. With the at-home program and community sites offering free testing across the metro, it's easy to find a test.

    • Unvaccinated teachers, staff and students in K-12 should test weekly at a minimum or more frequently per CDC guidance.
    • People who are unvaccinated should test before travel (domestic or international).
    • Even if you are vaccinated, you should get tested
      • if you have symptoms of the virus;
      • if you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19;
      • if you are returning from international travel;
      • or if you have attended a large gathering or event where people are not wearing masks and are not able to stay 6 feet apart.

    Our community continues to have many free COVID-19 testing options available:
