[WCCO-TV, April 28, 2020]

State Health officials say Minnesota can currently test roughly 2,400 patients a day for suspected COVID-19. That number is up from 927 tests per day a week ago—and the goal is to increase testing to 5,000 a day by Monday.

Allina Health is now ready now to test all symptomatic patients.

“Anyone who is symptomatic can currently be tested. We have opened that up as of this week,” said Sally Wahman, vice president of primary care for Allina Health.

Right now, Allina Health has eight testing sights in the state with the capacity to do 350 a day for now—they’re accepting anyone who has symptoms.
