UPDATE: The office of Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway confirmed Tuesday that both Spanish and Hmong language translators will be available at the Madison testing site.

Gov. Tony Evers announced Monday that state health officials are launching two new community-based testing sites in Milwaukee and one in Madison.

It is part of a series of efforts by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and the Wisconsin National Guard to work with local health departments to create community testing sites in places with a known lack of access to testing or known community spread, according to a press release. These test sites are open to all residents, including essential workers, and will provide free drive-thru or walk-up testing.

“Increased testing and contact tracing are core elements of our Badger Bounce Back plan and are critical to slowing the spread and boxing in COVID-19,” said Gov. Evers in a statement. “I urge anyone who needs a test to go get tested at one of these sites and help protect your community and family from this virus.”
