Yesterday, May 11, 2020, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and Wisconsin National Guard opened a Dane County community testing site for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). 

Free, drive-thru and walk-up testing is available to all residents.

  • No appointment is necessary. Depending on utilization, the testing site will be open until further notice.
  • The testing will be conducted in the New Holland Pavilion at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.
