Free at-home PCR testing now available at Minneapolis Walgreens locations

As several Minnesota COVID-19 testing sites have closed in the month of May alone, a new and free option may expand access to testing nationwide.

Walgreens has collaborated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to offer at-home PCR tests at more than 1,000 of its stores, according to its site.

Services are now available in the Minneapolis area.

Customers can pick up the free Pixel by Labcorp COVID-19 at-home collection kits, no insurance necessary, in-store or at the curb.

According to the state, testing at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul, the Hutchinson Armory, the St. Cloud Armory, the Stillwater Armory and the Minneapolis Convention Center ended in May.
