Essentia Health moving mobile COVID-19 testing site

Essentia Health is moving its mobile COVID-19 testing site from West Duluth to the former Sears building at the Miller Hill Mall, effective Thursday, July 16.

Hours of operation will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Testing volume has increased significantly, stressing our current site located at 59th Avenue West. Thus, we are making this move to better accommodate the influx of traffic, and out of respect for our West Duluth neighbors.

At the former Sears building, which is owned by Essentia, drive-through testing will continue to be performed in a garage on-site. And patients still need a medical order to be tested.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you can start a free E-Visit at EssentiaHealth.org (click here).
