The hours for COVID-19 testing that the Wisconsin National Guard is providing in Kenosha County will shift slightly, due to the impending end of Daylight Saving Time on Saturday night.
Beginning this Friday, Oct. 30, testing will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays outside of the Kenosha County Center at highways 45 and 50 in Bristol, and during the same hours Mondays outside of the Kenosha County Job Center, 8600 Sheridan Road, Kenosha.
The testing hours, which had been 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., are changing so that less testing will need to occur after dusk.
Testing on Mondays at the Job Center is scheduled to continue each week through Dec. 7, while the County Center testing is set for each Friday through Dec. 4. (Note: No testing will be offered Friday, Nov. 27.)
This testing is available to all who live or work in Wisconsin, ages 5 and up. No symptoms of COVID-19 are required. No appointment is needed, although advance registration is encouraged at https://register.covidconnect.wi.gov.
Individuals who are tested should expect results within seven days, accessible via the Wisconsin COVID-19 Result Hotline, 866-419-6988.
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.
