Gov. Tim Walz announced a new COVID testing site will be opening in Bemidji this Thursday.
The Minnesota National Guard is supporting the network of COVID testing sites across the state.
Bemidji’s site will be at the Armory, and after Thursday it will be open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Bemidji’s site will be a saliva test site, rather than the rapid testing sites that opened in Wadena and Hibbing this week.
Walk-ins are welcome at any community testing site, but appointments can also be made online through this link:
