COVID-19 Testing Opportunities

The Minnesota Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control strongly recommend that unvaccinated students participate in weekly screening for COVID-19 and that all individuals get tested when they’re experiencing symptoms. We are pleased to be able to offer access to a variety of options for screening testing for our families:

  • COVID-19 test at home: Order a free test through the state’s at-home COVID-19 testing program. Tests are delivered quickly right to your home.
  • COVID-19 community testing: Walk in or schedule an appointment at one of the free, no-barrier testing sites.
  • Find testing locations: Find many local and free opportunities here, including options for drive-up testing.
  • The District also has a supply of tests that can be made available to students. For more information about this option, please contact the COVID Coordinator at your child’s school.
