ThedaCare COVID-19 News & Testing Locations

ThedaCare is announcing testing locations and dates to ensure access to COVID-19 testing for those living in Northeast and Central Wisconsin. ThedaCare continues working with state and local health officials to coordinate mobile COVID-19 testing sites and dates.  

In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine, to help manage community spread of COVID-19, testing is critical. Testing gives health systems insight to the breadth and depth of those infected in our communities, and help better understand the spread of the virus. ThedaCare encourages community members to be tested if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Appointments for mobile testing are required, and individuals should pre-register online at doineedacovid19test.com.
