Safety Precautions and Screening
COVID-19 testing for kids and families
The Minnesota Department of Health is providing opportunities for students and families to get tested for COVID-19 every two weeks, through the end of the school year. Families can visit a community testing site, order an at-home test kit, or get tested through your healthcare provider. All options are quick and free to you.
You can sign your entire family up to get tested at the same time at a community testing site. If someone in your family prefers to speak in another language besides English, in-person or language line assistance is available. Test sites are doing everything they can to make sure sites are clean, safe and comfortable for everyone.
Teachers, school staff and coaches are already getting tested regularly. While it is not a requirement, regular testing compliments other safety measures already in place, such as masking and social distancing, which all help limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep our schools and sports open.
