URGENT: FREE COVID-19 TESTING

If you were involved in protests, vigils, or neighborhood events

COVID-19 can spread easily and quickly in large groups of people who are close together for long periods of time. Some people do not have symptoms but can still spread the virus to others. If you participated in a protest, vigil, or other neighborhood event, you should get tested.

These community sites are specifically designed to serve those who live in most impacted neighborhoods and the immediate surrounding community.

The State of Minnesota is offering COVID-19 testing to people living in the communities impacted by recent large gatherings in the Twin Cities area. If you do not live in these neighborhoods, we encourage all other Minnesotans to be tested at their local clinic. For help finding a nearby location, see Find Testing Locations.
