Fargo Cass Public Health COVID-19 test site moving to new location



FARGO – Beginning Monday, March 15, Fargo Cass Public Health will provide COVID-19 testing and BinaxNOW rapid screening from the new testing location of 3051, 25th St. S. in Fargo, Suite K.

The new testing space is located in the Family Fare strip mall, between the Hi-Ho Burgers & Brews and Grand Junction Grilled Subs restaurants. The testing operation is a partnership of the North Dakota Department of Health, the North Dakota National Guard, and FCPH.

COVID-19 testing is provided Monday – Friday, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. for priority groups identified by the Red River Valley COVID-19 Task Force.

BinaxNOW rapid screening is provided for the general public Monday – Friday, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., with evening hours on Thursday extended to 7:00 p.m.

Individuals with a COVID-19 testing requirement for travel are welcome to be tested at the new location and should utilize the RT PCR (real-time polymerase chain reaction) test, which is most widely accepted by airlines. Upon arrival, individuals should inform site personnel they have a testing requirement for travel.

The previous testing site, located at the former Faith + Journey Lutheran Church in West Fargo, had been operational since October 2020 but was recently sold, prompting the need to secure a new space.

While appointments are not needed for either type of testing, individuals who plan to be tested are required to pre-register. Individuals only need to complete the registration process one time, even if they participate in multiple testing events.
