Residents of two dozen Minnesota counties including LE Sueur county plus the Red Lake Nation can now order a free COVID saliva test on-line to take at home, under a pilot program just launched by the state Health Department.   Assistant Commissioner Dan Huff: You just get on-line, order your test, it will come in the mail, it’s very easy. You actually do a Zoom call with a health provider over the computer and they walk you through it, and then you just mail it right in. Huff says people will receive results in a couple days via e-mail. For more information, go to the Minnesota Department of Health website and search for “COVID-19 Test at Home”. Huff says they want to make the COVID saliva test available to everyone in Minnesota as soon as possible: “I think we’ll probably run the pilot for a week, maybe two, make sure we get everything worked out and then, by sometime in November we’ll have it available to everybody in Minnesota.”
