Minnesota launches four-week free COVID-19 testing
September 18, 2020
Minnesota health officials will begin a four-week push to offer free COVID-19 testing across the state, especially in places with workplace clusters, border towns and undertested areas.
In some ways, the plan formalizes the ad hoc testing events that have been offered the past several months during outbreaks at food-processing plants or among college students.
The diagnostic testing, which involves a nasal swab, paves the way for a state plan for coronavirus antibody saliva testing that is expected to launch in mid-October.
