Adams County to host drive-through community testing
For the City Times
ADAMS COUNTY – Adams County Health & Human Services Department- Division of Public Health (ACPH), along with Adams County Emergency Management and the Wisconsin National Guard (WING), are hosting a drive-through community testing site for COVID-19.
The test site is open to all Wisconsin residents ages five and over and the tests are free of charge. Testing will be held at Adams-Friendship High School, 1109 East North Street, Adams, on June 2, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
“Adams County has requested the Wisconsin National Guard establish a mobile testing site to enhance our capacity to test residents,” said Leah Eckstein, public health officer. “Large-scale testing is a key public health strategy to identify disease outbreaks and act quickly to use other public health strategies (like contact tracing and isolation and quarantine) to contain infectious diseases. Continuing to work with our local, regional, and state partners, our communities will slow the spread of COVID-19 making it possible to safely return to “normal”, while conserving the progress we have made to save lives.”
Appointments must be made in advance. Call 608-339-4505 to schedule an appointment. Tests will be done by WING in your vehicle.
