According to KFYR-TV Sanford Health is now able to offer the rapid tests which takes about 45 minutes to perform. The rapid tests are in Bismarck, Fargo, Sioux Falls, and Bemidji. According to KFYR-TV this will increase Sanford's testing to an additional 1,500 tests per week!  This will be great for patients they'll know the day they got the test if they have the virus or not.

Personally this is great in many ways that people can now know today if they have the virus or not instead of having to wait a couple of days to find out. Hopefully the other medical places in the Bismarck-Mandan area can also get the rapid tests. Many people want things to go back to normal, I would like that myself. These times are out of the ordinary but I'm proud to live in a great community come together in difficult times. We can all work together to help stop the spread.
