Free COVID-19 testing for protesters, community members at Sabathani and other sites

Chris Juhn/MSR News

If you were involved in protests, vigils, or neighborhood events, get tested


COVID-19 can spread easily and quickly in large groups of people who are close together for long periods of time. Some people do not have symptoms but can still spread the virus to others. If you participated in a protest, vigil, or other neighborhood events, you should get tested.

The community sites listed below are specifically designed to serve those who live in most impacted neighborhoods and the immediate surrounding community. The tests are free and open to everyone even if there are no symptoms. No insurance is needed. Testing is administered by professional medical staff and results will be provided to each participant confidentially as soon as possible.

WHEN: 12-6 pm; Tuesdays and Wednesdays: June 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24
