(Aitkin, MN) — Thursday is the final day of COVID-19 Community Testing in Aitkin from the Journey North Church but the testing will be able to substantiate numbers in the immediate future that have an effect on schools in keeping students in the classroom.

Our conservation from earlier this week with Aitkin County Public Health’s Brea Hamsdorf and Erin Melz, says the goal of the Testing Site is to keep the schools open.

Assistance from the Minnesota Department of Health, State Emergency Operations Center, and Minnesota National Guard has also helped in making this Testing Site run smoothly.

Erin Melz also discussed the guidelines that Public Health, MDE, and local schools have determined whether schools need to change learning plans.

Hear more of our conversation with Aitkin County Public Health at The COVID-19 Community Testing at the Journey North Church wraps up today from 12-3pm.
