(ABC 6 News) - Mayo Clinic has opened a second COVID-19 specimen collection location, this time in downtown Rochester.
The Downtown Evaluation Center Mobile Unit, located at Third Street Southwest and Third Avenue Southwest, is available for testing patients that are not able to make it to the drive-thru location at Mayo Family Clinic Northwest.
Patients are required to have a screening first to determine if testing is appropriate and must have an appointment.
Additionally, Mayo Clinic states it has been working to obtain the equipment and supplies required to increase the number of tests that can be processed in its laboratories. Starting today, it will be able to process "significantly more tests" at the existing laboratories across Minnesota.
