The Minnesota Department of Health is partnering with local public health officials to offer free COVID-19 testing in Montevideo.  The testing event in Montevideo will be held Tuesday, October 20 through Thursday, October 22, from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Montevideo Community Center.

Testing is free, available to anyone who feels they need to be tested whether they have symptoms or not, and will not require insurance. To avoid long lines, community members are encouraged to pre-register for a time slot.

Increased access to testing and identifying positive cases as early as possible is a critical way to keep schools and the economy as open as possible. Positive cases staying hidden leads to more spread and more detrimental impact to our schools and economy.
