FAQs:

What kind of tests are these?

The UW System universities' testing sites use Abbott BinaxNOW antigen tests that provide a result in about 15 minutes. The test is a nasal swab administered by a medical professional. 

Will there be PCR tests?

PCR tests distributed by the federal government and allocated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services will be used as a confirmatory test in line with Department of Health Services existing protocol. The PCR test is a saliva test that will be viewed in a medical lab to confirm if the virus is present. 

Do you have to be experiencing symptoms, be a close contact, or be a community resident to get a test?

No. This testing site is open to anyone 5 years of age or older, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms. It is also open to all UW-Superior students (residential and non-residential) and employees.

How are they administered?

They are administered using a light nasal swab administered by a medical professional.

Can people just show up or do they need to register?
