Health Dept. adjusts COVID-19 testing hours at American Family Field

The Milwaukee Health Department announced on Thursday, Feb. 25 it will adjust the schedule for COVID-19 testing at American Family Field (formerly Miller Park).  

The largest testing operation in the region will now be open three days per week starting next week. The drive-through and walk-up testing facility at American Family Field will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Officials say these changes came because as the number of COVID-19 infections has declined in Milwaukee in recent weeks, the demand for testing has gone down.
