NEENAH, Wis. – ThedaCare is releasing information about additional testing sites and dates to ensure access to COVID-19 testing in Northeast and Central Wisconsin. Testing will be coordinated through mobile testing units in the community over the next several weeks. All testing sites now offer rapid testing, where most results are available within 15 minutes, and PCR testing where results are available within 24-48 hours
To best manage community spread of COVID-19, testing and contact tracing are critical. Testing gives health systems insight to the breadth and depth of those infected in our communities, and help us better understand the spread of the virus. ThedaCare encourages community members to be tested if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
The schedule is as follows:
|7 Culver Family Welcome Center University of Wisconsin Oshkosh||8 Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium||9 ThedaCare Physicians-Neenah||10 Christ the Rock Community Church||11 Culver Family Welcome Center University of Wisconsin Oshkosh|
|14 Culver Family Welcome Center University of Wisconsin Oshkosh||15 Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium||16 ThedaCare Physicians-Neenah||17 Christ the Rock Community Church||18 Culver Family Welcome Center University of Wisconsin Oshkosh|
|21 Culver Family Welcome Center University of Wisconsin Oshkosh||22 Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium||23 ThedaCare Physicians-Neenah||24 Christ the Rock Community Church||25 Culver Family Welcome Center University of Wisconsin Oshkosh|
The drive-through testing is free and is available to all community members experiencing symptoms, those who believe they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and anyone who is worried about possibly having the virus. Though appointments are not required, they are recommended; individuals can pre-register online at doineedacovid19test.com or register onsite. You do not need to be a ThedaCare patient to receive a test. Those seeking testing do not need to be a resident of the community where these testing sites are located. Individuals under 18 years old must have a parent or legal guardian present to consent. Results will be given online, or through a phone call if necessary.
For those unsure about their symptoms and want more information about whether or not they should seek testing, they can access the ThedaCare online symptom checker at ThedaCareCovid19.org. After completing a brief questionnaire about their symptoms, individuals will be given more information about next steps to take, including how to schedule a test. The site also includes information about COVID-19, testing, online care options and other important news and updates.
