State announces another batch of free COVID-19 rapid tests for Minnesotans

Minnesota leaders announced another batch of free COVID-19 rapid tests will soon be available for all households.

Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan say there are four additional free at-home rapid tests for all households in the state ahead of Thanksgiving.

Free tests may also be found at food banks, local health agencies, community groups and other community health organizations.

According to the Walz administration, the costs for over-the-counter, at-home COVID-19 tests are required to be covered by health plans offered by insurance companies, employers and Medicare. Minnesotans can present their insurance cards when picking up tests.
