The Wisconsin National Guard will be offering free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing in Kenosha.

The testing will take place at the Kenosha County Job Center located on Sheridan Road. Testing will be offered from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 2, Oct. 3, Oct. 5 and Oct. 6.

Testing is available to anyone over the age of 5 and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“This is our first National Guard testing opportunity in Kenosha County since early August, and it comes at a good time, with schools now in session and an unfortunate, recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in our county and state,” said Kenosha County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit. “I encourage people to take advantage of this and to also remember to get the seasonal flu vaccine. Protecting ourselves against the ‘regular’ flu will help allow our hospitals and health care professionals to focus on caring for COVID-19 patients.”
