The Frogtown Community Center (230 Como Avenue, St. Paul) is now a COVID-19 testing site. This site only offers the Saliva test, which is available to anyone 2 years of age and older. Health experts continue to emphasize the importance of testing for those who develop symptoms or are exposed to someone with COVID-19. This allows for the swift identification of infection and appropriate treatment and isolation for those infected in order to prevent person-to-person spread of the virus.
The testing at the Frogtown Community Center is open on Tuesdays and Thursday, from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, both days. All tests are free, both walk-ins and appointments are accepted, and this site has the capacity to administer as many as 300 tests per day. To schedule an appointment on a Tuesday, click here.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) reminds everyone to not eat, drink, or chew anything for at least 30 minutes before taking your test.
