What if I need to travel before I’m vaccinated?

If you need to travel before getting vaccinated, there’s a few extra precautions to take.

  • Get tested 1-3 days prior to leaving
  • Get tested 3-5 days after travel and self-quarantine for 7 days (10 if not tested)
  • Self-monitor for symptoms
  • Wear a mask!

Community Testing – Saliva Tests

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is offering Minnesotans more and different options for COVID-19 testing by offering saliva testing, in addition to traditional COVID-19 community testing, in a growing number of locations across the state. The test is more comfortable than a nasal swab, and available at no cost to anyone who believes they need a COVID-19 test.

  • Saliva testing is free and available to all Minnesotans who believe they need to be tested, with or without symptoms.
  • Identification is not required. You do need to have an email address and phone number to receive your results.
  • Insurance is not required. If you do have insurance, you will need to show your card. The test is completely free whether or not you have insurance, and you will not receive a bill.
  • Saliva testing may not be right for those with low saliva production, such as children under age 4 or someone who has suffered a stroke.

Community Testing – Nasal Swabs

Nasal swab testing is available in many clinics and hospitals across Minnesota.

  • Signing up ahead of time helps avoid long lines. People who walk in without an appointment might have to come back later or another day.
  • If you are not able to sign up online, or need an interpreter, call 1-855-612-0677 for assistance.
  • You’ll need to show your identification and insurance information (if you have insurance) when you arrive.

There are many COVID19 testing sites throughout Minnesota. Find one near you.

Locations are setting their own guidelines for patients. Some are only testing symptomatic patients, some are accepting asymptomatic patients, some are fee-based. Various location information is on the site.

Some locations can perform a rapid COVID-19 test for an additional fee. They aren’t as accurate as a nasal or saliva test, especially if you don’t have symptoms.
