(KWNO) A two-day community COVID-19 testing event kicked off at Winona State Tuesday.

Winona area residents can get a free test from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Vehicles for the drive-through testing are asked to turn onto Mark St. from Huff St. then turn left into the IWC parking lot.

The Minnesota Department of Health is coordinating with local partners to conduct the testing. Winona County Emergency Management Director Ben Klinger says MDH’s direct involvement means the results times will come back in 24 to 48 hours.

Klinger says those who are pre-registered should expect the process to take a maximum of five minutes. Walk-up testing is also available.

14 new cases were reported in Winona County Tuesday.
