The Blackhawk Technical College (BTC) COVID-19 testing site will continue testing through May 27th, 2021. The BTC testing site will continue to be open from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. every Wednesday and Thursday. Testing continues to take place in Parking Lot H and citizens must remain in their vehicles until it is their turn for testing. A Guard Member will motion from the door for the next person in line to come into the testing site when it is your turn. Members of the Wisconsin National Guard will administer 150 to 200 tests each day based on the current community demand.
Registration is strongly recommended, although patients can register at the test site. To register for testing, please visit register.covidconnect.wi.gov. A Spanish-language interpreter will be available on site periodically to help non-English speakers.
