CARRIS INCIDENT COMMAND: Curbside Collection for pre-screened patients
Willmar and Redwood
On Monday, March 16 at 8:00 AM, curbside specimen collection will begin at Carris Health – Willmar Clinic and Carris Health – Redwood Clinic. Currently this service is only available to patients who have a scheduled appointment.
Patients who are experiencing signs and symptoms, or have concerns about possible exposure to COVID-19, and are asking if they should schedule an appointment, Carris Health Redwood Nurse Line or CentraCare Connect to ensure they are directed to the correct source of care and to determine if they qualify for curbside collection.
• Carris Health – Redwood Nurse Line – 507-637-1730, Monday- Friday, 8:00
AM to 5:00 PM
• CentraCare Connect – 320-200-3200, 24/7 to speak with a nurse
At the curbside collection appointment, a specimen will be collected via nasal and oral swab. The sample will be tested for influenza. If negative, the specimens will be sent for COVID-19 testing. Our goal in offering curbside collection is to keep patients who are at risk for COVID-19 out of our clinics and Emergency rooms.
