(Minneapolis, MN) -- Minnesota officials say they are going to announce expanded COVID-19 testing options this week as demand surges.  

Those seeking tests in the state over the last two weeks have been met with long lines and even signs saying testing supplies had been exhausted. Some Minnesotans attempting to order home testing kits from Department of Health partner Vault Health got messages saying that all test kits for the day had already been shipped.  

A Department of Health spokesperson says they are assessing their testing network and are preparing new options for residents.
