(site of former DMV office)

Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Minnesota Department of Health will provide free COVID-19 testing at the site of the former DMV location, 9930 Logan Avenue, in Bloomington. The site will open on Monday, August 30 at 11 a.m. Saliva testing will be offered Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Testing is free at all of the state’s community testing sites. Participants will be asked for their health insurance information so the state can bill their insurance company on their behalf. If a person is uninsured or if insurance doesn’t cover some or all of the cost, the state will cover the difference so testing remains open to all at no cost.

Testing is open to anyone who believes they need a COVID-19 test, with or without insurance. State guidance on who should get tested can be found on the Minnesota COVID-19 Response webpage: Who Should Get Tested?.

Those who arrive for a test should avoid eating, drinking, chewing, or smoking anything for at least 30 minutes before providing a sample. Once they arrive at a testing location, they will self-administer the test by salivating into a funnel attached to a small tube. Site staff will be available on-site to monitor the collection process.

While walk-ins are welcome, people seeking testing at state sites can schedule a test online. Tests will be processed in Minnesota at the saliva lab in Oakdale. Results will be provided via email in approximately 48-72 hours.

In addition to the testing site in Bloomington, residents can order a test through the state’s free at-home testing program or find another nearby testing option through the state’s Find Testing Locations map.
