Testing Information 

AT-HOME TESTING

At-home specimen collection kits are available at no cost to Wisconsinites, regardless of symptoms or exposure.

1.  Request an at-home collection kit. A collection kit will be delivered directly to your home; PO boxes are not eligible to have kits delivered.

2.  Collect your sample. Once you receive your collection kit, you must collect the sample in the presence of a licensed health care professional over a virtual Zoom call (download Zoom). Once you have downloaded Zoom and are ready to produce a saliva sample, you may join a virtual waiting room.

3.  Send in your sample. After you have collected your saliva sample, you will need to drop off your collection kit at a UPS drop-off location on the same day as the collection. Your results will be emailed to you.

General Testing Information

What should you do while waiting for results?

While you're waiting for your test results, it's important that you isolate yourself. Do not have contact with others. Do not go to work, meet up with friends or attend gatherings. Isolating yourself will prevent spread of the virus should you test positive.
