In cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), the Minnesota AIDSLine staff have gathered information from other AIDS Service Organizations who receive full or partial funding from the State of Minnesota and/or Hennepin County to create a centralized list of services affected by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Because situations change frequently and every agency's circumstance is different, there may be a lag of time between when information about services change and when the information on this page is updated.
Rainbow Health and the Minnesota AIDSLine will make changes to the information on this page daily or as needed. The full Minnesota AIDSLine Resource Directory can be viewed here.
