The Minnesota Department of Health is indicating that if you were involved in protests, vigils, or neighborhood clean-up, or other events with a lot of people, you may be at increased risk for COVID-19.
MDH is recommending that you get tested for COVID-19 right away if you have any symptoms. If you do not feel sick, it's best to wait at least 5 days after the event before getting tested. If your test is negative and you are worried you might have been exposed, get another test 12-14 days after the event, even if you do not feel sick.
See COVID-19 Testing in Minnesota for more information, including testing locations specifically designed to serve those who live in most impacted neighborhoods and the immediate surrounding community.
Maintaining an Inclusive Community
We know and understand this is a very emotionally taxing time for many of us. This also reinforces our need to support one another and keep our community strong. We must not allow our fears to cause us to assign blame to any person or group of people based on their skin color, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, or home country. Harassment, xenophobia, and racism based on COVID-19 or other situations are contradictory to our St. Catherine values, are not acceptable, and will not be tolerated.
