ABSTRACT

ELC Enhancing Detection: Wisconsin Testing Plan   [open pdf - 602KB]

From the Document: "Wisconsin's testing strategy is that all Wisconsinites who need a COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] test should have access to a test. The goal is to establish a sustainable testing infrastructure within all Wisconsin communities, sufficient to ensure all persons who are symptomatic have timely access to testing. It should build and support local capacity to ensure effective and timely public health investigations and ensure that individuals who test positive have the appropriate supports for safe isolation. Particularly as Wisconsin reopens, we anticipate a higher rate of infection and project a demand for more testing. This will allow individuals who are infected and contagious to isolate. Testing is provided free of charge to all individuals. In addition to individuals experiencing any symptom of COVID-19, even mild symptoms, DHS encourages testing for some individuals without symptoms who are prioritized by health departments or clinicians, for any reason, including: public health monitoring, sentinel surveillance, or screening of other asymptomatic individuals according to state and local plans."
