COVID-19 Rapid Testing Options

Purpose: 

This article will educate employees and their friends and family where to go for Rapid Result COVID-19 testing in the Minneapolis MN market.

Measurement:

  1. Successful same day testing available to caregivers within 10 miles of their home at no cost to the employee
  2. Always ask for the rapid result testing.  Both options are free and the PCR test can at times show false positive if you have had it in the last 3-6 months.

Resources:

NOTE: We have found that community sites tend to be busier with longer waits vs the private wellness sits like a CVS, Walgreens or local clinics.
