Covid-19 testing set for Friday in Tomah

 

A community drive-through Covid-19 testing site will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, at the Tomah Armory, 520 Mill St., Tomah.

The Monroe County Health Department and Monroe Emergency Management are partnering with the Wisconsin National Guard and the City of Tomah again to host the testing site. Nasal swab tests will be conducted.

This testing site is open to anyone who is 5 or older. Individuals do not need to have symptoms to get tested.

Note that lines may become long and attendees need to remain in their vehicles. Bring a book or other in-car entertainment. No antibody testing will be completed at this time.

Individuals can preregister the day of the event or register in their cars while they wait. Go to www.register.covidconnect.wi.gov. Each person must register individually, but you can use the same email address to register other family members. You will be emailed one QR code for every person registered, even if you use the same email address. Have your QR code ready when you’re at the testing site; you will need to show it to staff at least twice.

If you don’t register online, you will still be tested. Staff will be available to register you. No identification is necessary, but you’ll be asked your name, birthday, address, phone number, race, ethnicity, and gender. By asking for race, ethnicity, and gender, we can better identify possible disparities. You do not need to be a Monroe County resident to get tested. Spanish interpreters will be available.

Additional guidance, including a traffic entry-point map, will be added as they are available. Additional information will be on our Facebook page and on our website at http://healthymonroecowi.org/covid-19.
