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.

Updates

We highly recommend anyone present at recent protest events monitor their signs and symptoms for COVID-19 for 14 days after they attended an event. If you develops any signs, please get tested for COVID-19 and isolate at home until you know your test results.
