State guidelines and testing criteria differ by state, please read or select appropriate state below.

  1. Call your local healthcare provider or hospital if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  2. Test providers will determine if testing is appropriate for your case based on local criteria.. 
  3. Call the coronavirus test site before you go to confirm all final details.

  • If you think you are sick:
      • Stay home and call your doctor. People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. Do not leave, except to get medical care.
  • If your symptoms worsen:
      • If you have difficulty breathing, for example, seek medical care. Call your doctor’s office or emergency department, and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.
  • If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19:
      • If you have trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse bluish lips or face, get medical attention immediately – call 911 and notify the operator you may have COVID-19. If possible, put on a facemask before the medical help arrives.

  • Providers determine if patients should be tested. The state is prioritizing testing for patients who:
      • are critically ill and receiving ICU level care with unexplained viral pneumonia or respiratory failure
      • are hospitalized (non-ICU) with fever or signs and symptoms of lower respiratory tract illness (cough, shortness of breath)
      • are health care workers with unexplained fever and signs and symptoms of a lower-respiratory illness
      • asymptomatic patients are not being tested
  • Providers arrange for sample collection and send them to a lab for analysis. Tests are being analyzed by private labs, the Wisconsin State Lab of Hygiene, and Milwaukee Health Department Lab.
  • Test results are generally available within 24 to 48 hours.

For more information, call the state hotline at 1-800-887-4304 or visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ website.
