Minnesota COVID-19 Community Testing Sites

Appointments and walk-ins are welcome, however, health officials recommend making an appointment due to the increase in demand.

MINNEAPOLIS — With COVID-19 cases surging throughout the nation, Minnesota is providing free testing at a number of different community sites.

According to the Minnesota Department of Health, sites will allow walk-ins, however, health officials are encouraging people to make appointments due to the high demand for testing.

Sites will not be requiring identification or proof of insurance. If you have insurance, you can provide that information to the officials at the site so that the state can bill the company. If you don't have insurance, MDH says the federal or state government will cover the cost of the test. 

Community sites will offer a saliva test or a rapid test, with some locations offering both. Saliva (PCR) testing results are typically available 24-72 hours after processing, and are considered by officials to be the most accurate. Rapid testing results are available much quicker, typically 1-3 hours after being processed, but may not be as accurate. For more information about the two tests, click here.

For more information about testing and the different tests available, visit the Minnesota COVID-19 Community Testing page.
