a negative rapid home test sits on a tableAfter three years of emergency operations, we’re closing the doors to our community COVID testing clinic off South Park Street on April 14. The closure coincides with the expiration of the federal emergency declaration on May 11, and the end of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Community Testing Support Program. While our test site is closing, COVID is not gone and neither are your other testing options.
