The Red Door Clinic has made changes to the way we operate to continue serving you while protecting the health of all patients and staff.
Sick? COVID 19 contact?
If you are sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat) or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please call us. We can adjust your appointment time and determine best how to meet your needs while protecting health of staff and patients.
In order for us to best address your needs, we want to talk to you first. Clinical staff (a nurse or nurse practitioner) will talk with you to develop a plan for meeting your needs. This allows us find the proper appointment slot for you and to keep your time in clinic as short as possible to minimize risk to yourself and others.
We are able to manage many health concerns by phone. Please call the clinic at (612) 543-5555. After getting registered, you’ll talk to one of our Nurse Practitioners who will conduct a visit by phone. If needed, you’ll be scheduled for an appointment in clinic.
Please call us at 612 543-5555 and press #3 if you are due for a refill on your PrEP medication. You’ll speak with one of our PrEP coordinators and be scheduled into clinic for any needed lab work.
Face coverings are required in all Hennepin County buildings and will be required at Red Door for the duration of your visit. This helps protect all other patients and visitors. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.
Changes you’ll see in clinic
We will ask you questions on the phone and in person to determine if you have symptoms or other risks of COVID-19. In clinic, we have marked spaces on the floor 6 feet apart, and we are escorting patients directly to exam rooms after registration to keep lobby empty. We are doing extra cleaning of exam rooms and bathrooms between patients.
We are limiting clinic space to patients only at this time. Please leave friends and family at home.

COVID-19 and sex
While COVID-19 is not known to be spread sexually, it can be spread due to close contact and it’s hard to have sex without close contact! See this link for further information about ways to practice harm reduction to decrease your risk of COVID-19: NYC COVID-19 Sex Guidance (PDF).
