Green Bay – Prevea Health has expanded access to free COVID-19 testing. It now has 10 locations across the state of Wisconsin that offer testing, and this includes two new sites in the Greater Green Bay region: Prevea East De Pere Health Center in De Pere and Prevea Washington Street Health Center in downtown Green Bay.

“The ability to test more people for COVID-19 is critical in curbing the spread of the virus throughout our communities,” says Dr. Ashok Rai, President and CEO, Prevea Health. “This is especially important now as we see the state of Wisconsin trending upward in the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days, and as we see an increase in the number of patients with symptoms of the virus seeking testing.”

Prevea Health began offering free COVID-19 testing at select sites in May. It is now available in 10 communities across the state: Green Bay, Ashwaubenon, De Pere, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Oconto Falls, Shawano, Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls and Rice Lake. Testing is available to anyone in Wisconsin experiencing any of the following COVID-19 symptoms:
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

Those experiencing any of the above symptoms and who wish to be tested must sign up on MyPrevea, which can be accessed at www.myprevea.com or downloaded as an app on Apple or Google Play. You do not have to be an established Prevea patient to set up an account on MyPrevea or to access a free test. It takes just minutes to set up an account, complete a short assessment and schedule a test at one of the following sites.
