Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Mayo Clinic has made a slight adjustment in the operating hours at its Community COVID Testing Center in Rochester.

Mayo says beginning Monday, Jan. 11, the site will be open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.

This change will focus on the hours where there is the most patient demand for testing. Under the current schedule, the site was open until 7 pm.

The site is located at 3033 41st St. NW.

Mayo says anyone seeking testing should call their primary care provider, or the Mayo Clinic COVID-19 Nurse Line at 507-293-9525, to determine if they need to be tested and where to proceed to be tested. People should not go to a COVID-19 testing location without an appointment.

Once patients arrive at the testing site, they will remain in their vehicle and check in for their appointment by phone. When they can be seen, patients will receive a text message or phone call, and proceed into the building to their room. This is where swabbing will take place. Patients will be advised of next steps.
