Ramsey County Public Health is working with community partners to offer COVID-19 testing at two sites over the next four weekends. The drive-thru and walk-up testing is open to anyone, with or without symptoms. The testing is free, no insurance or ID is needed and will start Aug. 8, at the following locations and days:
- Saturdays, 2-6 p.m. – Aldrich Arena 1850 White Bear Avenue, Maplewood, MN 55109
