If you are a person who has been denied COVID-19 testing in Hennepin County, then fellows from the Center for Health Equity/CDC Public Health Associate Program through the Minnesota Department of Health should hear from you.
Fellows are collecting narrative examples from community members who have experienced being denied COVID-19 testing or who have been denied care because of COVID symptoms.
The examples will be shared with the Commissioner of Health and healthcare systems leaders to address these issues.
Please share your stories with them so that they can compile them for leadership. If possible, please try to include these details (if available):
- Where it happened (the hospital or clinic and the city or region)
- When it happened
- Any details about the situation
- The reason the person was given for being denied testing or care
Responses should be mailed to email@example.com.
