New Midtown Testing Site Opens 5/16

A new site will consolidate two metro sites while ensuring testing needs and demands are met.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is opening a new COVID-19 community testing location in the Midway neighborhood of Saint Paul and closing two existing testing sites as part of the state’s ongoing work to adjust testing resources to meet demand and need.

  • May 12 will be the last day of testing at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in downtown Saint Paul, and May 13 will be the last day of testing at the Stillwater Armory.

The state’s new testing site, located in the former Herberger’s at 1400 University Avenue West in Saint Paul, will open on Monday, May 16 and offer rapid antigen testing Sundays 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and Mondays through Fridays 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

This new site will bring even greater consistency to Minnesotans who want to access testing as it will not be subject to the occasional closures that took place to accommodate events at the auditorium and armory.

Visit mn.gov/covid19 for a list of operating hours and addresses for the state’s entire community testing network, and to make an appointment.

Minnesotans can order two sets of two rapid tests through the state at Order your free at-home rapid tests. Through the federal government, Minnesotans can order free rapid at-home tests at CovidTests.gov. Food banks, local public health agencies, community groups and other community health organizations may also have free tests available.

Anyone can walk in or schedule an appointment for a test at one of the state’s free COVID-19 Community Testing sites or find a testing option near them through the state’s Find Testing Locations map.
