COVID-19: Community Testing Sites
Where can I get tested for COVID-19 in my community?
COVID-19 testing services are available at many health clinics, pharmacies, and community testing sites statewide, or by using over-the-counter at-home self-tests.
The map below displays current COVID-19 community testing sites in Wisconsin. This map is updated daily. Click on the purple dot for specific information for each testing site, including day(s) of operation, hours, and contact information.
Community testing site information changes frequently. For the most up-to-date information about each testing site contact your local health department.
As the federal public health emergency declaration ends on May 11, 2023, testing sites across Wisconsin may discontinue in-person testing. Be sure to call the testing location to verify hours of operation prior to visiting. COVID-19 testing remains available through at-home testing, health care providers, and community testing locations which will continue to be updated regularly on the DHS Test Map.
What can I expect at a community testing location?
Each site may have different requirements. Check with the testing site location for clarification.
- Many sites will require an appointment before you arrive in order to ensure they’ve collected your contact and insurance information.
- Some sites may ask you to stay in your car. Other sites will screen you before you come indoors.
- Some sites may have age requirements.
- Some sites may require a fee for testing service.
How will I receive my test results?
Many community testing sites will provide rapid results on site before you leave. If you have received a lab-based PCR test, you may be notified of your test results by phone, email, or by logging into your web-based service such as COVID Connect 2 (for community testing sites) or other services such as MyChart (if tested at a health care location). If you have been waiting for more than four days for your results from a community testing site, call the results hotline at 866-419-6988.
The call volume received by this line has greatly decreased over the past several months. With the ending of the Community Testing Support Program and low call volume, effective March 23, 2023, at 4:30pm, the COVID Information Line will no longer be available. After this date, Wisconsin residents seeking testing information or test results are encouraged to reach out to their testing or health care provider. If they are having issues with COVID Connect 2, they can be directed to DHS COVID Testing (email@example.com) and a technician will reach out to them.
What if I test positive?
Learn more about options that are available to you. DHS also offers a free COVID-19 Treatment Telehealth service that may be able to help you get a prescription for available treatments. Once you test positive, stay home for at least five full days and isolate from other people in your home. Day 0 is the first day symptoms began or the day that your positive COVID-19 test was taken if you don’t have symptoms.
