The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is offering Minnesotans more and different options for COVID-19 testing by offering saliva testing, in addition to traditional COVID-19 community testing, in a growing number of locations across the state. The test is more comfortable than a nasal swab, and available at no cost to anyone who believes they need a COVID-19 test.
- Saliva testing is free and available to all Minnesotans who believe they need to be tested, with or without symptoms.
- Identification is not required. You do need to have an email address and phone number to receive your results.
- Insurance is not required. If you do have insurance, you will need to show your card. The test is completely free whether or not you have insurance, and you will not receive a bill.
- Saliva testing may not be right for those with low saliva production, such as children under age 4 or someone who has suffered a stroke.
