COVID-19 Community Care Team

In response to the increase of COVID-19 cases across Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin, Essentia Health has put together a COVID-19 Community Care Team to help organizations in our communities to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through testing & vaccination.

Support for Organizations in Need of COVID-19 Testing & Vaccination

Priority for testing will be based on lowering the risks faced by the most vulnerable members of our population, along with places that have increased potential for transmission (skilled nursing facilities, long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, etc.).

Priority for vaccination will be determined by federal, state and local public health.

Our Team's COVID-19 Care Process

Facility Intake

Organizations can make an inquiry for COVID-19 care by submitting our facility intake form.


Requesting organizations will be required to complete registration, insurance billing and patient consent documents in advance of vaccination and/or testing.

Vaccination & Testing

Members of our COVID-19 Community Response Team can go to the requesting organization for support with COVID-19 testing and vaccination.

Organizations that have the capacity can also do their own swabbing.

Communication of Test Results

Test results will be communicated to the requesting organization for all participants and can also be found in MyChart.
