Do people showing COVID symptoms follow the same testing protocol/test in the same location as people who aren’t showing symptoms?

Campus test sites are open to all students and employees to use to remain in compliance with campus testing requirements. As with all COVID-19 testing in Dane County, testing is also available to students and employees who may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or are identified as having close contact with someone positive for COVID-19.

Anyone experiencing symptoms may also access testing through a health care provider or community test site. Students can call University Health Services at 608-265-5600 or schedule an appointment via your MyUHS account at uhs.wisc.edu. Do not attend work or class while you are experiencing symptoms.

Test sites were evaluated for safety and feasibility by a team including University Health Services; Environment, Health and Safety and Facilities Planning and Management and designed to maintain appropriate physical distancing and low density. Each location is cleaned frequently.

We also encourage individuals to wear their face coverings while pooling saliva, in between drooling into the funnel.
