Here's how to get a COVID test in (or near) Racine County right now

{{featured_button_text}}

All information current as of Monday, Jan. 18.

CVS Pharmacy

The only "permanent" daily test site in Racine County listed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services is CVS Pharmacy, 3915 Durand Ave., Racine.

Testing there is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, go to CVS.com/minuteclinic/covid-19-testing.

Tests at CVS are performed via the drive-thru, with drivers using the nasal swab on themselves with the guidance of a professional.

Weekly community testing

Rather than intermittent community testing days typical throughout the summer and fall, the National Guard now has regularly scheduled community testing at two different Racine County locations two days a week. They are:

COVID testing returns to fairgrounds

Wisconsin National Guard members Andrew Laedtke, left, Megan Collins, seated, and Wyatt Fritz handle COVID-19 test kits Jan. 6 during a drive-through public test clinic held at the Racine County Fairgrounds in Yorkville. Working with local health officials, the National Guard plans to offer tests at the fairgrounds 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Wednesday through March 10. 

Every Wednesday through at least March 10, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Racine County Fairgrounds, 19805 Durand Ave. Vehicles should enter the fairgrounds via Main Street, according to a release from Racine County.

• Every Thursday through at least March 4, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., at Festival Hall, 5 Fifth St. A notice from the City of Racine about testing states: “Be patient and remain calm. Expect long wait times.”

For community testing, results are expected to be available within one week and can be received by calling 866-419-6988. Preregistering for a test, which can be done at register.covidconnect.wi.gov, at either the fairgrounds or Festival Hall is encouraged but not required.

You also do not need to be actively experiencing symptoms to get tested.

For more Racine County coronavirus response information, go to coronavirus-response-racinecounty.hub.arcgis.com or crchd.com/covid-19.

Go to racinecoronavirus.org for more City of Racine coronavirus response information.

Get a home test

Wisconsin residents can also request at-home testing kits by going to dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/collection.htm.

After requesting a test, it should be delivered to your home within a matter of days. PO boxes cannot be used for delivery.

According to the Department of Health Services: "Once you receive your collection kit, you must collect the sample in the presence of a licensed health care professional over a virtual Zoom call," which can be downloaded at zoom.us/download.

After that is done, samples are to be sent back by dropping them off at a UPS drop-off location. To find one near you, go to ups.com/dropoff.
