Minot Mayor pushes healthcare providers to offer free Hepatitis C testing

After a local outbreak, community leaders call for free hepatitis C testing.

Ever since the beginning of the Hepatitis C outbreak in Ward County, members of the Minot community have called for more testing for the disease and now city leaders are joining the push.

Minot Mayor Chuck Barney has penned a letter to Trinity Health and First District Health Unit, urging both providers to offer free testing.

In the letter, which is dated last Wednesday, Sept. 7, Barney says that the residents have shown concern over whether the Hepatitis C outbreak may have extended beyond ManorCare, the assisted-living facility identified in the investigation, and he says “a time of trust must again be established for the citizens in the health care providers in Minot.”
