MINOT—Minot Health Clinic is now offering a Rapid RT-PCR COVID-19 test. The test is required for international travel. Local residents and Canadians no longer have to travel outside Minot to acquire this testing.

“I decided this was a worthwhile investment for the Minot community along with those outside the area.”Trisha Fennern, FNP-C, owner, Minot Health Clinic

Trisha Fennern, FNP-C, owner of Minot Health Clinic, states, “I was contacted by Visit Minot requesting a local business to offer the Rapid PCR test for travel. At the time, the primary concern was to serve Canadians. Since then, I’ve recognized the need to provide this service to anyone who is needing this testing for travel purposes.  I decided this was a worthwhile investment for the Minot community along with those outside the area.”

The testing used at Minot Health Clinic is a molecular in vitro diagnostic test using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and is a Nucleic Acid Amplified Test (NAAT) utilizing Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR). Many travel restrictions require a RT-PCR, molecular, or NAAT test prior to arrival at the destination. This testing encompasses all three features.

The Rapid RT-PCR COVID-19 test satisfies most travel requirements. However, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to verify the test will be accepted for travel prior to purchase.

The price of the test is $150, and results can be expected in 30-60 minutes. Appointments must be made on the clinic’s website, www.minothealthclinic.com.

Appointments are available Monday through Friday. If additional testing times are needed, requests can be sent by email to minothealthoffice@gmail.com. Although no guarantee is made that the clinic can always accommodate additional requests, Fennern says they will try to do so.

Minot Health Clinic is located at 1021 20th Ave SW, Suite 113, Minot, and their telephone number is 701-837-1551.
