St. Luke's said patients will park alongside the clinic building and be checked in at their vehicles. Measures will be takent to prevent transmission of respiratory illnesses among patients.

According to St. Luke's, this clinic will care for patients of all ages who need an in-person evaluation for non-emergent respiratory-related issues. 

St. Luke's said people should visit the clinic for the following concerns:

  • Cold and flu
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sinus, nasal and/or chest congestion
  • COVID-19 concerns like cough, body aches or fever

"While we are still recommending that patients with mild illness who do not need an in-person evaluation stay home in accordance with CDC and health department guidelines, this is the best place for people to go if they have respiratory health concerns,” Dr. Matt Hansmeier said. “Our goal for this clinic is to keep our patients, staff and community safe and healthy by caring for all respiratory illnesses at one extremely well-equipped location.”

No referral or appointment is needed. People can call the clinic at 218-249-4609 if they have questions.
