The City of Janesville is partnering with Rock County Emergency Management and the Wisconsin National Guard to offer free COVID-19 testing for the community.
Free COVID-19 testing will be available Monday, October 12, 2020 through Friday, October 16, 2020 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. each day at Dawson Softball Complex, 900 Beloit Avenue, Janesville, WI.
Testing is open to anyone age five and older, but especially encouraged for those experiencing symptoms. COVID-19 symptoms include:
- Sudden Loss of Taste/Smell
- Shortness of Breath
- Sore Throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Muscle Pain
- Nausea or vomiting
No appointment is necessary, though pre-registration is recommended. Please pre-register at register.covidconnect.wi.gov. Registrations will not be accepted until 72 hours in advance of testing. Preregistering not only may save time at the testing site; you also may get your results quicker.
This is a drive-thru testing site and anyone getting tested must stay in their vehicle. A nasal swab will be used to collect a sample by a uniformed member of the Wisconsin National Guard.
Due to limited testing supplies, up to 500 tests will be administered per day. The testing site will close for the day once 500 tests have been given.
A Spanish-language interpreter will be available for those who don’t speak English.
Please contact Assistant to the City Manager Maggie Darr at (608) 755-3103 with questions about the community testing. The City of Janesville continues to closely monitor the impacts of COVID-19 and provide information to assist residents and businesses to respond to the emergency as it evolves.
