Our Response to COVID-19
Testing is available at Wayzata Children's Clinic by appointment only and may be advised depending on your child's symptoms. Due to supply fluctuations, we do not always have same day testing options. Supply and demand change daily, so please inquire when you call.
If your child requires testing for an exposure, we encourage use of MDH or Carver county testing sites so we may preserve appointments for children who are ill.
For children under 5: We completed our COVID vaccine clinics for children under 5. If we plan to hold more events in the future, we will update this page.

What to expect at your child’s visit
Open Clinic is suspended, no walk-ins. Please call to schedule. We adhere to the most current national and state infection control standards, including separation of well children from ill (different entrances or times of day), physical distancing in our waiting rooms, and requiring patients over 2 years old, parents, and clinic staff to wear face coverings.
We rigorously clean high touch areas—all scales and equipment as well as each exam room are comprehensively sanitized between each use and cleaning schedules are verified by clinic supervisors throughout each day. Because we have removed books and toys from our waiting rooms, it is helpful to bring items to occupy your child while waiting for your appointment. We will ask screening questions upon arrival.
Please note that you may be asked to reschedule if you, your child, or a family member has had any ill symptoms over the past 72 hours.
Many appointments (medication follow ups, skin concerns, certain illness visits) can be done via telehealth. Our schedulers can guide you on whether this is an option for your child’s appointment.
24 Hour Nurse Help Line
During clinic hours, Wayzata Children's Clinic's Registered Nurses (RNs) are available for consultation. For after-clinic-hour concerns, RNs from the Children's Health Network (associated with Children's Hospital) are available. These nurses will answer your questions or, if necessary, put you in contact with a Wayzata Children's Clinic Pediatrician, who is on-call seven days a week, 24 hours a day. For life-threatening emergencies, please dial 911.

We highly recommend the COVID-19 vaccine for ages 6+ months and the COVID-19 booster for ages 5+ years and encourage you to get it wherever you can.
