Saliva COVID-19 testing will remain at community sites such as the one at MSP airport, while the state phases out a mail-in testing program and offers four free rapid antigen tests per household.

Minnesota is phasing out a mail-in COVID-19 testing program and offering a new option to order four free rapid at-home tests per household.

One million tests will be available online to Minnesotans starting Tuesday on a first-come, first-served basis. The state offer is in addition to free tests available from the federal government and builds up testing capacity for Minnesotans as health officials eye the potential of another COVID-19 wave.

"COVID-19 testing remains a key tool for Minnesotans," state Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said. "Even during times of lower community transmission, there are plenty of reasons a person might want to know whether they are infected and a potential risk to others around them."
