Until this week, getting tested for COVID-19 in Minnesota has meant a bit of discomfort.


Most tests statewide are conducted by a PPE-clad medical professional, swabbing a sample from deep in a patient’s nose or far in the back of their throat.


It’s not terrible, but it’s also not comfortable.


But starting Wednesday, Minnesota residents can be tested by spitting into a tube. 


Health officials are opening the state's first COVID-19 saliva testing site in Duluth.


This is an MPR News morning update for Wednesday, September 23, 2020. Hosted by Cathy Wurzer.
