The Minnesota Department of Health has released preliminary numbers from its free COVID-19 testing event held in Mankato last week.

“Over 1800 individuals were tested,” said MDH Infectious Disease Director Kris Ehresman. “As of now, there were 46 positives for a positive percentage of around two percent.”

Ehresman says the free testing events were held at the Myers Fieldhouse on the MSU campus last Wednesday and Thursday.
