service beginning Thursday, October 22, at Christ the Rock Community Church, W6254 U.S. 10/114, in the Village of Harrison from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.



This site is available to the public through a collaboration between the Wisconsin Army National Guard, Calumet County, Christ the Rock Community Church, and emergency management teams from the tri-county area.


Entry to the testing site is only from U.S. 10/114. Exit from the testing site is onto Woodland Road.


The site will be open at the same times (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) each day testing is offered. The testing dates are October 22-24 and 29-31; November 5-7, 12-14 and 19-21; December 3-5.


The National Guard will not be testing on November 26-28 (Thanksgiving).


Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 is encouraged to get tested. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, chills, muscle aches or loss of taste or smell.


The Tri-County Calumet COVID-19 Testing Site is available to those ages five and older. Contact a pediatrician or healthcare provider for children under five years old.


The health agencies encourage anyone who has been identified by Public Health as a close contact to get tested, but no sooner than 5 to 7 days after exposure. If tested too soon, the virus won’t be detected yet.


It is highly recommended that people register ahead of time at register.covidconnect.wi.gov.

To register, click on the blue button that directs you to a screening questionnaire. If there are multiple people in your family to be tested, you can use the same email address, but complete a questionnaire for each individual.


After testing and while you are waiting for your test results, it is important that you limit contact with others to prevent spread of the virus should you test positive. You should receive test results via email and/or phone call within three to seven business days.
