Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 is encouraged to get tested. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, chills, muscle aches or loss of taste or smell. The Tri-County COVID-19 Testing Site – Calumet is available to those ages five and older. Contact a pediatrician or healthcare provider for children under five years old.

We encourage anyone who has been identified by Public Health as a close contact to get tested, but no sooner than 5 to 7 days after exposure. If tested too soon, the virus won’t be detected yet. 

It is highly recommended that you register ahead of time at register.covidconnect.wi.govTo register, click on the blue button that directs you to a screening questionnaire. If there are multiple people in your family to be tested, you can use the same email address, but complete a questionnaire for each individual. 

After testing and while you are waiting for your test results, it is important that you limit contact with others to prevent the spread of the virus should you test positive. You should receive test results via email and/or phone call within three to seven business days.
