(Minneapolis, MN) -- Governor Tim Walz says Minnesota will soon have expanded COVID-19 testing resources.
Walz announced Tuesday that the state will be taking a three-pronged approach to expanding testing. Approaches will include three new community testing sites, one-point-eight million rapid tests directed to schools to give to families, and 150-thousand at-home rapid test kits for communities disproportionately affected by the pandemic.
Walz says testing is a key way of dealing with the omicron variant.
