Do you need a COVID-19 test?  Here are some options for getting a COVID-19 test on the Iron Range.

If you are symptomatic, have had a high-risk exposure, or need a COVID-19 test for pre-procedure or travel reasons, you can make an appointment by calling Fairview Mesaba Clinic at 218-362-6682 to be triaged for a COVID-19 test Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

  • NEW! Rapid COVID-19 Testing Site in Hibbing
    Rapid COVID-19 tests are now available at the Hibbing Armory (2310 Brooklyn Drive, Hibbing), with support from the National Guard. The site is open Monday-Tuesday each week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    The tests are free. It's a nasal swab, and results typically come back in 1-3 hours.

    Note: Rapid tests are recommended for people who are already symptomatic. People without symptoms should seek out the more accurate PCR test.
