Governor Tim Walz says Minnesota has done more than half-a-million COVID-19 tests and reached its capacity goal of 20-thousand tests daily. Walz says, “I can tell Minnesotans that we have one of the major tools necessary to weather the long haul… [until we get a] vaccine, with a robust testing infrastructure that was built in a very Minnesota manner. We called it the ‘moon shot.'”
The state continues to provide “pop-up” sites at various locations that need additional testing capability. Those have included Duluth, Moorhead, Saint James, Faribault and Mower County — plus in the Twin Cities after protests following the death of George Floyd.
