COVID-19 tests are again available for free to Minnesotans who need them.
Anyone who previously ordered the full limit of eight tests from the state’s online ordering program will now be able to place a third order for four additional free at-home rapid tests. Those who have not yet placed an order can receive up to twelve tests at once while supplies last.
“With the suspension of the federal mail order tests, Minnesota will continue to ensure access to free at-home rapid test kits for Minnesotans,” said Governor Tim Walz. “The free tests are just one part of the state’s comprehensive testing and vaccination program to provide readily available COVID-19 protection services across the state.”
Minnesotans can also place orders through the Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 Public Hotline at 1-833-431-2053 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Language assistance is available.
