Stillwater, Inver Grove Heights COVID testing sites to expand next week

Community COVID-19 testing sites in Stillwater and Inver Grove Heights are set to expand next week, state officials announced Friday.

On Friday, Gov. Tim Walz’s office announced the Stillwater and Inver Grove Heights sites will temporarily expand to help increase testing capacity and accessibility.

"Our state Community Testing Sites provide free COVID tests, and we’re continuing to expand hours and locations to increase that testing access for Minnesotans," Walz said in a statement. "Testing is an essential tool for helping prevent the spread of COVID-19. I am grateful for all the Minnesotans doing their part by getting tested, and we’re working in overdrive to do everything we can to ensure tests are as available and accessible as possible."

Minnesotans can find one of the many state testing sites or an at-home testing kit here.
