Originally the sites were supposed to last about six weeks or through mid-December. However, in a press release from the UW School System, it said, "Thanks to added support from the United States Department of Health and Human Services to meet the damnd, surge testing will continue up until at least Christmas."
The 22 "surge testing" sites located on or near UW campuses offer free rapid coronavirus testing to students, employees and community members. Since the program started in November, about 100,000 tests have been administered.
Results are available roughly 15 minutes after the test. There are no walk-ups available. You have to schedule an appointment through www.doineedacovid19test.com.
