Student COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 and Anoka Tech

 Student Services and Resources

Diseases can make anyone sick regardless of their race or ethnicity. People of Asian descent, including Chinese Americans, are not more likely to get COVID-19 than any other American. Help stop fear by letting people know that being of Asian descent does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19. Source CDC
