Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

We are closely following the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

In order to protect our communities and our health care workers from inadvertent exposure to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we are making regular changes in order to stay up-to-date on the rapidly changing situation and recommendations from the Center of Disease Control, United States Surgeon General and others.

We can’t stress enough how important your health is to us. There is a lot of information circulating about (COVID-19), and it’s important for you to have access to accurate information and as well as resources for your overall health and wellness. For your convenience we have condensed information to make it easier for you to filter through.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ COVID-19 Community Testing Support Program partnered with organizations like Prevea Health to provide local, convenient COVID-19 testing sites. As the knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 testing has evolved, DHS has shifted the program’s efforts to an ‘antigen first’ model.

At Prevea Health community COVID-19 testing locations, PCR tests will only be available for those who are symptomatic with a negative antigen result and those without symptoms will only receive an antigen test.

Appointments for COVID-19 testing are required and can be scheduled through MyPrevea or by calling (833) 344-4373. There continues to be no cost for community COVID-19 testing with Prevea Health at this time.
