MDH giving 4 more free COVID-19 tests to Minnesotans

Minnesotans have one more chance to get free at-home COVID-19 tests from the state.

Tuesday, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) announced a final offering of four free at-home rapid tests for each household.

People can get tests by ordering online or calling 1-833-431-2053.

“Since the state’s free test program began last April, more than 2.5 million free tests have been delivered to Minnesota households,” MDH Commissioner Brooke Cunningham said.

“Testing is essential in getting the proper treatment to those who need it and preventing the spread of COVID-19, and the state’s free online ordering program made it simple for Minnesotans in every corner of the state to easily access critical testing.”

While it’s the last offering through the state’s free at-home test program, MDH said Minnesotans can still get tested for free at community testing sites or at many local public health agencies, community groups and other health organizations.

Many health plans are also currently required to cover the cost of over-the-counter at-home tests.
