To meet the needs of the St. Kate’s community during this pandemic, the Health and Wellness Clinic providers are primarily focused on COVID testing and vaccinations. We will continue to see all mental health appointments virtually through Google Meet. Online scheduling is available in the patient portal for mental health appointments only. Please see the COVID section below for information on COVID testing and COVID visits.
At peak times we experience high call volume, we appreciate your patience during these times. Please leave us a message when calling and any message left during business hours will be returned the same day.
At this time we would like to remind our community that the most important thing we can do for ourselves and the health of our community is to limit contact with others, wash our hands, and stay home if we are not well.
Health and Wellness Clinic Testing
COVID-19 saliva PCR tests are available on campus for faculty, staff, and students. We encourage anyone concerned about COVID-19 to get tested, especially those who are:
- Identified as a close contact per the MDH guidelines
- Required to be tested for participation in athletics, clinicals, etc.
- Returning from travel (domestic or international)
When you arrive for your test:
- Wear your mask until you begin the test.
- Bring your smartphone and health insurance card with you to register for the test.
- Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes prior to testing.
- Results will be sent directly to you via email once they have been processed.
Other Locations for Testing
Most clinics and hospitals across the state have the ability to collect samples (specimens) for lab testing. See Find Testing Locations for a map of Minnesota's ongoing testing locations.
Call ahead before going to the clinic or hospital to be tested. Not all clinics test people who do not have symptoms.
MDH works in partnership with communities to provide safe and free on-site COVID-19 testing in areas with outbreaks, increasing cases, or other barriers to access existing test sites. See COVID-19 Community Testing for locations and dates for new community testing sites.
