Members of the Minnesota National Guard spent the weekend providing free COVID-19 tests at six armories in the state, and they'll continue to provide the tests on Memorial Day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. 

Testing will provided to anyone, whether you have symptoms or not, at National Guard armories in Minneapolis, East St. Paul, Duluth, Faribault, St. James and Moorhead. Of course, the testing is available as supplies last. 

Most people who showed up over the weekend for a test didn't have symptoms, according to Major Kirk Sutton, who spoke to FOX 9

"Most have a friend or relative that tested positive or they've been exposed to somebody at work who's tested positive, and for their own sense of wellbeing they want to come in and get tested," Maj. Sutton said. 

Here's where you can get a test between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday. 

  • East St Paul: 1530 Maryland Ave. E in St Paul
  • Minneapolis Armory: 1025 Broadway St. NE in Minneapolis
  • Moorhead Armory: 1002 15th Ave. N in Moorhead
  • Duluth Armory: 4015 Airpark Blvd. in Duluth
  • Faribault Armory: 3000 W Airport Road in Faribault
  • St. James Armory: 521 Armstrong Blvd. N in St James

National Guard members will swab the inside of your nose and ask you to complete paperwork with your name and contact information so you can be contacted with results. There is no charge and you won't be asked for your insurance card or ID.

Results are expected within an average of 48 hours.
