The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), operator of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), announced a partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health and Vault Medical Services on the opening of a COVID-19 PCR saliva testing station at the airport.
The COVID-19 testing site is located near the former Terminal 1 rental car counters adjacent to Level 2. Operated by Vault Medical Services, the testing site will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
Testing will be free for Minnesota residents, though those with insurance need to provide that information for reimbursement processes. The fee for the COVID-19 test for non-Minnesota residents is $94. The tests will be processed at a lab in Minnesota and results will be sent by email in 24 to 48 hours
“Increasingly, the aviation industry is looking at testing as a way to ease concerns about travel between states and nations,” said MAC CEO Brian Ryks. “We’re already seeing timely negative results from COVID-19 tests reduce quarantine requirements in some places, and we hope that trend will continue as time goes on and reliable testing becomes more readily available.”
