Dakota County and Dakota Child and Family Clinic are adding a second location — Northern Service Center in West St. Paul — for free drive-thru COVID-19 testing.
Drive-thru testing is available at:
Dakota Child and Family Clinic, 2530 Horizon Drive, Burnsville
- Wednesdays, 3–7 p.m.
- Sundays, noon –4 p.m.
Northern Service Center, 1 Mendota Road West, West St. Paul
- Saturdays, beginning Sept. 12, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.
Testing is open to anyone. You do not need to have COVID-19 symptoms, and no health insurance or personal identification is required. The nose swab viral test will be administered by professional medical staff.
To make an appointment, call 612-223-8838. You can make an appointment for yourself, family members and friends. Interpreters are available.
Test results should be available 3–7 days after the test day. Wait times may be longer depending on number of tests conducted daily around the state. Those who test negative for COVID-19 will be notified by email, text or phone call. If a test is positive, a clinic team member will call to discuss what next steps should be taken.
Testing is one of the best ways to control the spread of COVID-19. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or anyone who has been around someone with symptoms should be tested.
The testing clinics are funded with the county's share of federal CARES Act funding in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
