There are more COVID-19 tests available than people getting tested in the state of Minnesota.

“We’ve got additional capacity in the state that is not being used,” said MDH Commissioner Jan Malcom. “We remind people that are symptomatic that they should be getting tested.

Malcom says the directive from MDH is to test every symptomatic person. Malcom says if a clinic is having difficulty meeting demand, they should assist persons in finding another location to be tested.
