The Red Lake Hospital continues to perform regular COVID testing at the drive-thru building by the hospital. If you have questions about how to get tested for COVID-19, call the hospital at 218-679-3912 and press 1.
If you feel ill, please stay home if you can to avoid getting others sick. If you have tested positive for COVID or been in contact with a person who is positive, it is VERY IMPORTANT to follow the quarantine and isolation directions from the Contact Tracing Team. This will help control the spread of the virus.
The Red Lake Hospital is continuing to provide COVID vaccines to the general public. This can be done at the drive-thru building by the hospital. Parents/Guardians can sign a permission slip for their 16 & 17 year olds to receive a vaccine. An incentive of a $30 gift card, per dose, for Tribal members and descendants will be provided and can be used at the Red Lake Trading Post or the Ponemah Market.
Vaccines are available from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. by calling 218-679-3912, and press 1.
The COVID vaccine is another form of protection for you. And, it is still requested that you take all the safety precautions to protect yourself including wearing a face mask, social distancing and hand washing.
