Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We understand your concern and uncertainty you may be feeling about coronavirus (also known as COVID-19). We are working hard to provide our patients with the care and support they need during this time. Your health and safety are our top priorities, today and every day.

One of the most important things you can do right now is to stay informed from trusted resources. Our goal is to make sure you have the information you need to stay healthy and that you know what steps to take if you think you might have coronavirus.

What to do if you may have coronavirus 

  • Please isolate yourself at home.  
  • Complete our free online COVID-19 screening interview. It's available 24/7 and takes about 15 minutes to complete. We will provide you with next steps based on your symptoms.
  • Wash your hands often throughout the day. Use soap and water and scrub for at least 20 seconds. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Throw away used tissues and wash your hands. 
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched frequently. Use regular household cleaning spray or wipe. Follow instructions on the package. 

Testing

Testing availability is limited. We are working with the Minnesota Department of Health and other health care providers in Minnesota and Wisconsin to adjust our coronavirus testing procedures so we can conserve resources for the most critically ill patients and for the safety of our staff. 

This means that effective immediately, no outpatient testing for coronavirus will be performed in Allina Health clinics, Urgent Cares, Everyday Clinics and Emergency Departments. Patients who require hospitalization may still be tested. In addition to the most critically ill, our health care providers will continue to have access to testing, if needed.

If you believe you need urgent clinical assessment for coronavirus, please isolate yourself at home and complete our free, online COVID-19 screening. It's available 24/7 and takes about 15 minutes to complete. We will provide you with next steps based on your symptoms.
