Frequently Asked Questions 


As testing options expand in the Milwaukee area, it is important to note that:

Testing negative on one day does not guarantee you will not get sick with COVID-19. It is possible to be exposed to someone who is sick and receive a negative test result yet still develop illness, as the incubation period can be up to 14 days.

Only antibody tests will tell you if you had COVID-19 at any point in the past. If you receive testing at one of the community testing locations, this is a diagnostic test and only tells you whether or not you were positive at that time.

If you are waiting for COVID-19 test results or have symptoms of COVID-19 it is strongly recommended you isolate yourself from others to minimize the risk of potential transmission. This includes staying home and avoiding contact with others within your home to the extent possible. See the above graphic from CDC for more guidance. If you test positive for COVID-19, your local health department will notify you and provide you with additional guidance on self-isolation based on these recommendations from the CDC or WI DHS.

Rapid Antigen Testing:

The FDA has granted emergency use authorization (EUA) for SARS-CoV-2 antigen tests, which are rapid tests that can detect the presence of the specific viral antigen for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). If the antigen is detected, this implies current infection. These rapid antigen tests are currently approved for use with nasopharyngeal or nasal swabs and results can be returned within 15 minutes. The antigen tests are not as sensitive as the RT-PCR tests that are currently being used to diagnose COVID-19, but they provide many potential benefits due to their quick turnaround time.
