The Ellsworth COVID-19 community testing site hours will change starting Monday, Sept. 27. Testing will be available from 9-11 a.m. on Monday and Thursday mornings at Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services.
As cases of COVID-19 rise, the demand for Wisconsin National Guard community testing sites has also been increasing. To accommodate additional testing locations, the National Guard is adjusting times.
“We are grateful to have the support of the Wisconsin National Guard to provide testing to our community. Many communities have recently requested this help, so we will need to be flexible in order to share this resource with other counties,” said AZ Snyder, Pierce County Health Officer.
Please note there may be future changes in testing dates and times as demand in the region continues to fluctuate. To find the most current testing information, visit: covid-piercecounty-wi.hub.arcgis.com or call 715-273-6755. At this time the drive-thru testing site will be open for two hours, twice per week.
As a reminder, anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or who has been in close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus is eligible for testing. Please note the following:
All testing is drive-up without appointments. Pre-registration on the day of a test is recommended to speed up the testing process. Register at register.covidconnect.wi.gov.
