Testing options and locations
Each of our clinics below has testing options available depending on your current situation. Please see details on which location makes the most sense for you.
- Please do not go to an Emergency Department for your COVID-19 test. It is easier and much faster to get tested at the Minneapolis Convention Center, or many other locations across Hennepin County. Please visit MN Department of Health testing locations to find a location option that works best for you.
- Wait times may vary and clinic closing times may be earlier due to very high patient volume.
