In response to COVID-19 cases in Minnesota rising at alarming rates, Gov. Tim Waltz announced new restrictions for the entire state effective Friday, November 20, 2020. As we continue to navigate the changing needs of the HIV community during the COVID-19 pandemic, Aliveness is committed to remain open.

The Aliveness Project proudly supports the protective measures Gov. Tim Waltz announced to keep all Minnesotans safe from COVID-19. We stand behind the Governor’s decision to protect our communities and those most vulnerable safe from the rapidly increasing COVID-19 virus. We stand ready to support those living with HIV and anyone needing a free HIV test. 

Aliveness will continue providing our essential supportive services and food every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11am – 3pm while prioritizing the safety of our members, staff, and volunteers.
