Responding to increased levels of community spread of COVID-19 statewide, the Minnesota Department of Health will launch a four-week effort to provide increased access to “no barrier” COVID-19 testing in communities across the state, beginning the week of Sept. 21. 

State health officials will work with local health officials and other community partners to offer free COVID-19 testing in multiple communities each week

Testing will be free, available to anyone who feels they need to be tested whether they have symptoms or not, and will not require insurance.

The first week of targeted testing will occur in Grand Rapids, Pine City and Waseca. 

Pine City Testing Details: 

12-6 p.m. Sept. 23-24 at the Pine City Armory 

1305 Main St, Pine City
