New community COVID-19 testing site now available in Madison

MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Tony Evers announced the Department of Health Services and the Wisconsin National Guard will host two new community-based coronavirus testing sites.

One site will be in Madison and the other will be in Milwaukee.

The testing sites are open to all residents and will provide free drive-thru or walk-up testing.

"Increased testing and contact tracing are core elements of our Badger Bounce Back plan and are critical to slowing the spread and boxing in COVID-19," Evers said.

"I urge anyone who needs a test to go get tested at one of these sites and help protect your community and family from this virus."

The Madison community testing site is located at the Alliant Energy Center. It's open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m., to 4 p.m. No appointment or pre-registration is necessary.

COVID-19 testing at the Madison location is available by drive-thru only.
