Free weekly COVID-19 drive-through testing resumes at Merrill Festival Grounds
The Lincoln County Health Department has collaborated with the Wisconsin National Guard to again provide free weekly drive-through COVID-19 testing on a weekly basis. COVID-19 testing will be every Monday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., now through Dec. 13, 2021, at the Merrill Festival Grounds, 2001 E 2nd St. and participants should enter from Memorial Dr. No appointments are necessary; however, pre-registration is strongly encouraged and
can be done at http://register.covidconnect.wi.gov.
Testing is intended for symptomatic individuals or close contacts who are 12 months and older who have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, loss of taste/smell, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, body aches, diarrhea, vomiting or nausea, chills, and muscle aches.
Testing is only available to people who live or work in Wisconsin.
Individuals receiving a test or their guardians should be prepared to provide a current address, county of residence, phone number, and email address when they arrive. Testing will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, and attendees may have to wait to be tested. Vehicles will form a line while waiting for testing, and all attendees will need to stay in or on their vehicle at all times. No restroom facilities will be available onsite; please plan accordingly.
Please note that anyone tested is required to stay home until test results come back. Test results will be provided via email [or by phone if you do not have email] by the National Guard.
