A COVID-19 community testing site currently in Hibbing is moving to Chisholm, the Minnesota Department of Health said on Thursday.

The site will be located at the Chisholm Armory starting April 28. Appointments are encouraged but aren't required.

"Testing remains a key component of our strategy to protect Minnesotans from COVID-19," MDH Commissioner Jan Malcolm said. "Through a robust, collaborative statewide testing program, we have removed many obstacles to testing. When combined with social distancing, masking, avoiding crowds and staying home when sick, testing can help us slow the spread of COVID-19 while we continue the tireless work to get as many Minnesotans vaccinated as possible."

As will all community testing sites in the state, tests will be offered at no cost to participants, although insurance information will be asked for, for billing purposes.
