The Mayo Clinic Community COVID Testing Center is now open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Mayo Clinic announced late last week it would be adjusting the hours of its testing site on the first floor of 3033 41st St. NW. The change in hours focuses on times where there is the most demand for testing.

People seeking testing should call their primary care provider, or the Mayo Clinic COVID-19 Nurse Line at 507-293-9525, to determine if they need to be tested and where to proceed to be tested.

People should not go to a COVID-19 testing location without an appointment.

Once patients arrive at the testing site, they will remain in their vehicle and check in for their appointment by phone.

When they can be seen, patients will receive a text message or phone call, and proceed into the building to their room. This is where swabbing will take place. Patients will be advised of next steps.
