SANFORD HEALTH OFFERING FAST TESTS

Sanford Health can now test for COVID-19 with results available in 45 minutes. The rapid tests will be used for high priority hospital patients. Sanford Health in Fargo and Sioux Falls began 90-minute rapid testing earlier this month. Bemidji and Bismarck are the most recent Sanford regions to implement this test. The addition of rapid testing increases Sanford’s testing capacity up to 1,500 tests per week across the organization. If patients are experiencing symptoms including fever, cough and respiratory distress, they should call their provider instead of going directly to their clinic.
