State and local health officials will conduct a drive-up COVID-19 testing clinic for up to 350 people from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in Mayville.

Traill District Health Unit, the North Dakota Department of Health and the North Dakota National Guard will oversee the testing.

The event will be held in the MayPort-CG High School parking lot at 900 Main St. W.

Testing for first responders, health care workers and those who have been in close contact with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 will take place from 10 a.m. to noon.

Members of the general public can be tested from noon to 2 p.m. or until testing supplies run out.

“Testing is critical to identifying cases and preventing the spread of COVID-19,” Traill District Health Unit Director Brenda Stallman said in a release.

In addition to the groups previously identified, Stallman encouraged city workers, utility personnel and other essential workers to get tested Saturday.

Anyone interested in being tested is encouraged to register online before the event.

Online registration is available at https://testreg.nd.gov/.

Paper registration forms also will be available at the event for participants who don’t have internet access.

There is no cost for the test and health insurance is not processed.

Proof of residency and employment are not required.

Participants should be at least 12 years old unless they are part of a family that has been identified as having close contacts with a COVID-19 carrier.

The testing process is estimated to take approximately 15 minutes and those with a positive test result will be notified in 24 to 72 hours.
