COVID-19 Testing for Milwaukee’s Communities of Color
On May 7th Governor Tony Evers announced an initiative providing free coronavirus (COVID-19) testing for all of Wisconsin’s African Americans, Latinos, and tribal community members. The free testing could help save untold lives and prevent further spread of the novel virus, which has taken a staggeringly lopsided and deadly toll on people of color across the city and the metro area.
The free testing, which will be available starting Monday, May 11th, will be done at the following locations:
- 2701 S. Chase Ave.
- 5760 W. Capitol Dr.
Both locations will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. seven days a week
