First day of free COVID-19 saliva testing brings out hundreds in Duluth
September 25, 2020
DULUTH - About three hours into the first day of the free COVID-19 testing at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, nearly 300 people had been tested using the saliva tests.
While the line was long out the door after opening around noon Wednesday, Sept. 23, by 2:30 p.m. it had largely receded.
Shawn Baxley, the vice president of field operations for Vault Health, the company partnering with the Minnesota Department of Health to offer the testing, said the company expected the first day to be the busiest.
