Those who are tested should expect results within seven days, accessible via the Wisconsin COVID-19 Result Hotline, 866-419-6988.

“Our residents have been asking for more testing opportunities, and we’re thankful that the Wisconsin National Guard is able to offer this regular service — at two convenient locations, on our county’s east and west ends,” said Kenosha County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit.

Those who are tested should remain quarantined at home until test results are returned if they have been in close contact with a COVID-19-positive individual.

Other testing opportunities remain available in and around Kenosha County, although most or all sites require an appointment. A frequently updated list of sites is available at https://www.kenoshacounty.org/2058/COVID-19-Testing-Locations.
