Rapid (drive-up) testing at UW-Green Bay to end next week

GREEN BAY, Wis.—The federal surge COVID-19 testing operation held on the UW-Green Bay Campus since early November will end next week. Final opportunity for public testing on campus will be Tuesday, January 19 through Friday, January 22, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Testing is available to anyone age 5-and-older at no cost, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. by appointment at DOINeedACovid19Test.com. Individuals do not have to be experiencing symptoms nor have close contact of someone with COVID-19 to get a test, nor do they need to live in Green Bay. 

The partnership is a collaborative effort of the UW System’s 13 Universities and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center is the host facility in the region. 

Testing agency E-True North has processed more than 14,000 tests at this rapid-testing site. Individuals who want to be tested can register online, proceed to the testing site (Weidner Center), administer the test themselves under supervision, and label it for processing. All participants must register for a free test at www.doineedacovid19test.com. Participants will also retrieve results by logging into this portal after receiving an email that results are ready.
