Free COVID-19 tests available at First District Health Unit



MINOT, ND – Starting Tuesday, take-home test will be given out at First District Health Unit’s main office in Minot, at door entrance B.

Tests will be free, and the limit is up to two tests per person per household.

For travel requirements, the test may need to be confirmed by appointment at FDHU.

“They have a hard time getting those individuals in the rural communities to get tested, they not necessarily could find a place to get tested. So they’re hoping this fills the gap in the rural communities,” said Lisa Otto-Westman, environmental health.

First District will distribute 14,000 tests in the counties they cover. They’re scheduled to receive more every week.
