304 tested for COVID-19 at Onalaska drive-through
ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) — Just over 300 people were checked for the novel coronavirus during a drive-through testing event at the Omni Center Thursday.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services will present the results from the 304 who were tested and explain the data when they are finalized. Anyone who was tested Thursday should receive a phone call from the DHS or the Wisconsin National Guard, which assisted at the event.
Those from outside of La Crosse County will be contacted by their local health departments.
DHS case numbers reflect the number of lab-confirmed cases in counties, and any positive cases that result from this testing event will be reflected in the daily case count. The DHS count does not distinguish where the tests are taken.
Anyone who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 is encouraged to call your healthcare provider to ask about getting a test.
