It is the second week of free COVID-19 testing at four sites around the Twin Cities metro. The goal of the sites is to test anyone who may have attended a protest, community clean up, or any other large gathering following the death of George Floyd. State Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm says they tested nearly two-thousand people at the four sites yesterday.
“That number is expected to be at about 28-hundred today, we are finding about a one percent positivity rate in the latest batch of community testing results that we have.”
Malcolm says they are still encouraging anyone who attended a large gathering, whether or not they have symptoms, to get tested for COVID-19.
