MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - The Minnesota Department of Health says anyone who participated in a protest, vigil or other neighborhood event over the last few weeks should get tested for COVID-19, whether they are showing symptoms or not.
MDH has established four COVID-19 testing sites in the communities impacted by recent large gatherings in the wake of the death of George Floyd for people who live in those areas to get tested for the coronavirus. Testing at those sites is free—no insurance needed.
Appointments are recommended as there will be limited walk-in testing available.
If you do not live in those neighborhoods, MDH is encouraging all other Minnesotans to be tested at their local clinic. Click here to find the testing location nearest you.
