     Who Should Get Tested

    • Even if you are vaccinated, Minnesotans should get tested:
      • if you have symptoms of the virus;
      • if you have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19;
      • if you are returning from international travel;
      • or if you have attended a large gathering or event where people are not wearing masks and are not able to stay 6 feet apart.
    • People who are unvaccinated should test before travel (domestic or international).
    • Unvaccinated teachers, staff and students in K-12 should test weekly at a minimum or more frequently per CDC guidance.
    • With the at-home program and 11 community testing sites offering free testing across the state, the state has made it easy for Minnesotans to find a test.
