Free COVID-19 testing event in Winona

Testing available to anyone with or with symptoms

WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) – A free COVID-19 testing site in Winona is providing community members the chance learn if they have the virus.

The site is at the Winona State parking lot at the corner of Mark and Main Streets.

It is open to anyone whether they have symptoms of the virus or not.

The effort is about more than just the health of the people being tested.

“It helps us get a better picture of the numbers of how many cases we truly do have, how many people are symptomatic. And it allows us to identify those cases. And then isolate those people to slow the spread,” said Winona County Emergency Management director.

The site is open again Wednesday starting at 11 in the morning.

Pre-registration is encouraged and details are available on the Winona County website.
