COVID-19 testing for kids at Children’s Minnesota

We are currently offering clinic visits with COVID-19 testing for kids at any of our nine Children’s Minnesota primary care clinics.

Here’s what you need to know about our COVID-19 tests for kids.

Clinic visits with COVID-19 testing for kids


  • A clinic visit with a provider is required before getting a COVID-19 test at a Children’s Minnesota primary care clinic. If your child does not have symptoms, a visit with a provider is still required.
  • If you are looking for testing without a visit with a provider, please seek testing-only options at retail pharmacies or the Minnesota Department of Health locations.
