The community COVID-19 testing site at Hoffman Park in River Falls has closed but will re-open soon on the University of Wisconsin-River Falls campus. To accommodate a smooth transition, there will be no testing the week of May 3-7.

COVID-19 testing for the community has been taking place at Hoffman Park since February, with an estimated 1,900 River Falls individuals being tested since then.

Beginning Monday, May 10, community COVID-19 testing will take place in Hagestad Hall, 262 E. Cascade Ave. Directional signage will indicate available parking.

Testing appointments will be available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to noon. Testing is free and open to the public over 5 years of age, however, appointments are required. Community members interested in receiving a COVID-19 test must register at

Community testing is being offered by UW campuses in a partnership between UW System and the U.S. Health and Human Services Department in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
