The University of Wisconsin-Stout will begin offering free rapid-result antigen COVID-19 tests to community members, age 5 and older, on Friday, Nov. 6.
The tests are being offered through a partnership between the UW System and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help address the current surge in COVID-19 virus cases in Wisconsin.
The Abbot BinaxNOW antigen tests will provide a result in 15 minutes. A positive result will require a free polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to confirm the original result. This follow-up test will be administered on site with results available within a few days.
