(Minneapolis, MN)  —  Essentia Health is making changes to its method of COVID-19 testing.  The hospital announced Wednesday that they will be switching over to self-swab coronavirus testing so that staff members can focus on offering booster shots and care for patients.  According to reports, the option is only available to those who only want a test and are not scheduled to visit the clinic.  To schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 test, visit the MyChart patient portal or call your local clinic.
