DULUTH, MN- Minnesotans who need or want to be tested for COVID-19 will be able to access free testing at six National Guard Armory locations this weekend.
That includes the Duluth Armory, which began testing citizens at around 10 AM on Saturday.
Those who have been experiencing symptoms were tested in their vehicles and those who didn't went through another line and were tested in the armory.
Public Affairs Officer Audra Flanagan describes why the National Guard was involved.
"There was a need to do additional testing in places in greater Minnesota and the metro for people who felt that they didn't have the opportunity to test. Either because lack of medical care, lack of access to medical care, or insurance reasons," said Flanagan.
If you still would like to be tested, the armory will continue testing throughout the weekend from 10 AM to 5 PM.
