Expanded testing for COVID-19 is needed to turn the dial and re-open Wisconsin. We want to help the public better understand the necessary process and procedures that our hospital has put into place to provide testing for patients experiencing symptoms and those at higher risk with chronic conditions.
Should I get tested?
- The Badger Bounce Back Plan calls for testing for everyone who has symptoms of COVID-19. People who have been exposed to COVID-19 should also get tested. In general, those not showing symptoms are not being tested at this time.
- Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 or who has been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their doctor and ask to be tested.
- You can also be tested at a community testing site. Testing will be provided at no cost. Some locations may require a doctor’s note or appointment to receive a test.
- Questions about whether or not you should get tested? Contact your doctor or complete an online health screening assessment, and a licensed health practitioner will contact you.
While awaiting COVID-19 test results, you should follow recommendations to self-isolate and self-monitor in order to protect yourself and your community from COVID-19.
I might have been exposed. What should I do?
If you have had close contact (within 6 ft.) with someone confirmed to have COVID-19 and have symptoms (fever, cough or difficulty breathing), call your doctor first before going to the clinic or hospital.
