The Kenosha County Division of Health and the Wisconsin National Guard will offer another drive-thru COVID-19 testing site this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 4, 5 and 6, at Tremper High School in Kenosha.

Anyone ages 5 and up can be tested, regardless of whether they are showing symptoms. No appointment is needed. The cost is free. The site will be open from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Members of the Wisconsin National Guard will be conducting the tests.

“More testing means greater knowledge about cases of COVID-19 in Kenosha County, which is a key to slowing the spread of the virus,” said Kenosha County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit. “Businesses are welcome to send their employees through this site; entire families can get tested together. We’d like to see as many people as possible take advantage of this resource.”

Tremper High School is located at 8560 26th Ave. Visitors to the test site are asked to enter using the 30th Avenue entrance, where signs will be posted.

The Tremper site will operate in addition to a National Guard testing center at Westosha Central High School, which opened Monday and will continue through Saturday, June 6.

The Central High School location will be open from noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, June 3 and 4, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6. The school is located at 24617 75th St. in the Village of Paddock Lake.

Those who are tested at either site should expect results returned within seven days.

Note: This release was updated from an earlier version to reflect the addition of Thursday testing hours.
