Current campus locations for free community COVID-19 testing are listed on the registration webpage under Wisconsin.
To get tested, individuals register online or call 1-800-635-8611, proceed to the testing site, administer the test themselves under supervision, and label it for processing.
Individuals do not have to be experiencing symptoms or be a close contact of someone with COVID-19 to get a test, nor do they need to live in the community where the testing site is located.
