COVID-19 testing up at Mayo Clinic Health System in southwest Wisconsin

Patients are asked to call ahead or check for symptoms online to help community members get tested

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) —Demand for COVID-19 testing continues at La Crosse’s health-care centers.

Staff at Mayo Clinic Health System say testing numbers are climbing.

And testing Monday at the health system doubled when compared to before Thanksgiving.

“With the holiday recently, our best guess is that we may see an increase in some demand for the next maybe two weeks,” said Mayo administrator Megan Eddy.

Patients are asked to call ahead or check for symptoms online to help community members get tested when they need it.
