State, local health officials offering free COVID-19 testing in Glencoe August 20

GLENCOE – In response to the increase in COVID-19 cases in McLeod County, the State of Minnesota is partnering with the City of Glencoe, and McLeod County Public Health, to offer free COVID-19 testing Thursday, Aug. 20. Testing is free, and available to anyone who wants to be tested.

With the increase in cases in the county, this testing will offer critical insight into the degree of spread in the area. While many who contract COVID-19 experience mild or even no symptoms, some suffer life-threatening complications. All who contract the virus are contagious. The results of this testing will provide data to guide future efforts to combat COVID-19, and protect those who are most vulnerable to serious complications.

Date:         Thursday, August 20
Time:        2 to 9 p.m.
Location: Glencoe City Center
1107 11th Street East

Anyone who wants to be tested is encouraged to come, even if they don’t have symptoms of COVID-19. No insurance or identification is needed. Residents of McLeod and neighboring counties are eligible to be tested. Those who live farther away are encouraged to be tested at their local clinics.
