While the total number of COVID-19 tests that were administered at UW-W this past week has not yet been announced, it would be expected to be well over a thousand. It had been announced that testing would continue until Saturday at 7 p.m., as long as there were sufficient supplies. Apparently there were, as it was observed that testing was still taking place shortly before 6 p.m on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Banner has heard from a number of individuals who were tested on the first day of testing, Wednesday, and already on Saturday received notification that their tests were negative. It had been indicated that, although those with positive results should be notified within 2-3 days, those with negative results might not hear for approximately a week.
