Beginning Feb. 1, free, fast COVID-19 tests are available to anyone 5 years or older at:

UW-Whitewater Community Engagement Center.
1260 W. Main Street
Whitewater, WI 53190

Monday through Friday
11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Persons who want to receive a rapid-results test – available in about 15 minutes – should register at  doineedacovid19test.com or call 1-800-635-8611. Those who test positive through the rapid-results test are urged to get a confirmatory PCR test.

Individuals do not have to be experiencing symptoms or be a close contact of someone with COVID-19 to get a test, nor do they need to live in the community where the testing site is located.

Additional sites:

Community members who wish to get tested can also consult the COVID-19 Community Testing Site page on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website. That page currently lists testing sites across the state, including those in Walworth, Jefferson and Rock counties. (Please note: COVID-19 testing for community members at the UW-Whitewater Williams Center concluded on Jan. 22).

Individuals who wish to receive an exemption from COVID-19 testing due to being fully vaccinated should now submit their immunization record in any of the following ways:

  • Submit it online at https://my.uww.edu/Vaccination/
  • Bring the copy to the COVID-19 office, located in the UW-Whitewater Police Department at Goodhue Hall.
  • Fax it to 262-472-5746.
  • Mail it to UW-Whitewater Police Department, 790 W. Starin Rd. Whitewater, Wisconsin, 53190.

If you have already submitted your information to the COVID-19 hotline, you do not need to do it again. Processing may take up to 48 hours. Thank you for your participation and patience!

Once your information is submitted to the COVID-19 Hotline and you have received verification of its receipt, you may cease testing. If you begin to feel COVID-19 symptoms, you are expected to have yourself tested to ensure the safety of others and assist in the national evaluation of the vaccine.

Note: If your COVID-19 immunization is not on your immunization record or you were vaccinated out of state, please work with your local health department or the location you received the immunization(s) to get a copy of the record.

Doing our part

Student testing is made possible due to a partnership with UW System and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Faculty, staff and community testing is possible due to a University of Wisconsin System “surge testing” initiative, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“We have a longstanding mission to serve the region; and during this public health crisis, UW-Whitewater stands ready to offer its expertise, its resources, its venues and the talents of its caring employees to assist in the fight against COVID-19,” said Chancellor Dwight C. Watson. “With the virus surging across Wisconsin, testing is a critical component to stopping the spread. We want people to know that the Warhawk family is here to help, and in the spirit of our great university, we always pull together in the most challenging times.”
