Over the next month, free COVID-19 testing will be offered in several communities for anyone who feels they need to be tested, regardless if they have symptoms or not. Health officials are using testing data to identify communities that are experiencing workplace clusters, are close to bordering states, or have not yet had larger-scale testing offered.

Assistant Deputy Commissioner Dan Huff says they are deeply concerned in the spike in cases all across the state.

The first three communities where this targeted testing will be offered are Grand Rapids, Pine City, and Waseca. The Minnesota National Guard will be activated to provide staffing and logistical support for the increased testing push.
