Mayo Clinic Health System is adjusting their drive-through COVID-19 testing sites on Sept. 12 in Albert Lea, Austin, Owatonna and Red Wing.

These test sites will now operate under the following hours:

• Monday-Friday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

• Saturday-Sunday: 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

“We’re the only test provider in many of our region’s communities, and our patients and community members can continue to rely on us to keep these facilities going until they are no longer needed,” Deepi Goyal, M.D., chair of clinical practice for Mayo Clinic Health System, Southeast Minnesota said in a news release. “If there is a surge in our region and more hours are needed for testing, we will adjust accordingly.”

Mayo Clinic asks to call the COVID-19 Nurse Line at 507-293-9525 to learn about getting a test or contacting your local health care provider.
