Proctor Public Schools would like to assure our parents and community members that we are dedicated to providing you with the most current health guidance centered around the Coronavirus Pandemic. We are here to support you and our communities as we all navigate through this challenging time.
Please continue to call your child's school to let them know if someone in your household has symptoms, tests positive or if your child has been exposed to COVID-19.
The Duluth COVID-19 Saliva Testing Site<------Click here for an appointment
COVID-19 testing is available at no cost at all Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) community testing sites.
You do not need to need to show identification.
Tests are at no cost to you, and insurance is not required.
While appointments are recommended, walk-ins are always welcome.
These saliva tests are more comfortable than nasal swabs and just as accurate, but they may not be a good option for those with low saliva production, such as very young children or people who have suffered a stroke. Results are emailed to you 24-48 hours after taking the test.
If you have questions about saliva testing, please email email@example.com or call 800-800-5698.

What to expect at the testing site:
Wear a mask or face covering if you can.
The sites are usually busiest when they first open. Come later in the day if you can to avoid lines.
Walk-ins are welcome, but it’s best to pre-register for an appointment and arrive on time (not earlier).
You can show either your confirmation email/text or tell the staff your name, birth date, and address.
Bring your insurance card if you have health insurance. The test will be 100% at no cost to you whether or not you have insurance. If you do, we may ask your insurance company to help pay for your test.
Each person getting tested will need to have their own email address and a phone number to receive your results
