COVID Testing FAQs 

Remain calm and educate yourself about the symptoms and care of COVID-19. The links above will provide you with the most up-to-date information in Minnesota along with online resources and testing information for those who think they either have or are concerned about COVID.

In addition, there are several ways you can stop the spread:

Protect Yourself:
Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. 
Practice social distancing, stand at least 6 feet from other people.
Stay away from large events such as concerts and sporting events.
Try not to touch your face - it’s harder than you think.
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches and especially your cell phone.

Protect Others:
If you feel sick, isolate yourself from other people, especially the elderly, for 14 days.
Wear a mask to cover your cough (masks decrease the spread of the virus).
If you don’t need urgent medical care, stay home. This decreases your risk of getting the virus and your risk of spreading it if you are infected.

We will continue to do our part at The Urgency Room to stay on top of the latest information.  Our number one priority is protecting our patients, staff, and the communities we serve.
