Minnesotans are able to order two test kits (for a total of four tests) per home through an online ordering system. Minnesota has secured 500,000 test kits (for a total of 1 million at-home tests) and the program will be available until all the test kits are ordered. Minnesota will use this program as a model for providing more access to COVID-19 rapid testing in the months ahead.
Minnesotans will be able to visit mn.gov/covid19 to request two test kits, or four total tests, per household. Tests will be available until supply has been exhausted. If this program proves successful and valuable for Minnesotans, the state will count on it as a key part of the response to future case surges.
The State of Minnesota’s at-home PCR testing program through Vault Health ended on March 31. Minnesotans who have Vault PCR tests at home will be able to use them until they expire, or until December 31, 2022, whichever is first.
