Anyone experiencing symptoms should be tested. Regardless of vaccination status, residents or employees of correction facilities and homeless shelters should be tested after a known exposure. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, chills, muscle aches, or loss of taste or smell.
You do not need to be a ThedaCare patient or Calumet County resident to receive a test. Individuals under 18 years old must have a parent or legal guardian present to consent to testing. Results will be given online, or through a phone call if necessary.
We encourage anyone who has been identified as a close contact to a person with COVID-19 to get tested. Close contacts with symptoms should get tested as soon as possible. Close contacts with no symptoms should get tested during their quarantine period, testing no sooner than 3 days after exposure and, ideally, testing 5-7 days after exposure.
