COVID-19 testing resumes Nov. 5 at Racine's Festival Hall

City of Racine Public Health Administrator Dottie-Kay Bowersox announced on Tuesday, Nov. 3 that National Guard COVID-19 testing will resume on Thursday, Nov. 5, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Members of the Wisconsin National Guard operate a mobile COVID-19 test center on the grounds of Miller Park on October 29, 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

However, the location is changing from the Cesar Chavez Community Center to Festival Hall (5 Fifth Street) to accommodate the anticipated long line as COVID-19 cases continue to surge in the county. 

Bowersox issued the following statement in a news release:

"As the number of positive cases continues to climb, the Health Department anticipates there will be an increased demand for community testing. We are moving the testing site to Festival Hall because it is the only location in the City that handle the traffic and lines of cars we expect to see. As cases surge, I urge the community take advantage of the testing as it is available."
