State encourages COVID-19 testing for kids and families
The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that all school-age youth returning to school, sports, or extracurricular activities, and their families, get tested for COVID-19 every two weeks through the end of the school year.
Health officials hope regular testing will help keep schools open and sports operating, and ensure we are limiting the spread of COVID-19. Anyone could have COVID-19 and not know it. Getting tested regularly is the best way to know you are still healthy.
It has never been easier to get tested
- COVID-19 community testing sites are located across Minnesota, in addition to local hospitals and clinics. You can make an appointment ahead of time or walk in.
- You can also use the COVID-19 test at home program.
- Testing is provided at no cost to you, and you can now schedule appointments for the whole family at the same time.
For more information about scheduling group appointments for your family at a community testing site, visit COVID-19 Community Testing.
