MSP COVID-19 testing and test-to-treat sites closed Jan. 29

The COVID-19 testing and treatment sites at MSP Airport's Terminal 1 closed Sunday (Jan. 29) – one of the four remaining state testing sites to close this week.

As of Monday (Jan. 23), the MSP testing site had administered 691,850 tests over its more than two-year run – the busiest such state-run testing site in Minnesota. The site opened on Nov. 12, 2020.

The separate test-to-treat site at MSP, which opened in June of 2022, also closed Sunday. (At this site, patients who tested positive for COVID-19 could be evaluated onsite by a medical professional and get a prescription for the antiviral drug Paxlovid.)

The COVID-19 testing and test-to-treat sites are just two of the ways MSP and the MAC played a key role in helping Minnesotans through the pandemic. MSP also hosted COVID-19 vaccination clinics for a year between June 2021 and June 2022, when the consolidated clinic closed to make room for the test-to-treat clinic.

"Many thanks to the hundreds of MAC employees who worked so hard to stand up these extremely important facilities," said Kristi Rollwagen, manager of Emergency Programs for the MAC. "We still need to remain vigilant to protect our health, but we are making steady progress to put the pandemic behind us."

Although the sites at MSP closed, there are still many other places where people can get tested, vaccinated and treated. Visit the Minnesota COVID-19 Response site for more information.
