COVID-19 Updates

  • If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or have had close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, testing is available for eligible students at the Norris Health Center. You can self-schedule an appointment for a PCR test through the Medicat patient portal. There are a limited number of online appointments available each day. Testing takes place behind NHC at the testing trailer. It is quick, free, and convenient. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please cancel via the Medicat patient portal or by calling 414-229-4716. In order to get the most accurate results, please wait 5-7 days after an exposure before testing.
  • For those with no symptoms and no exposure who are in need of routine weekly testing per University requirements, surveillance testing continues at the Union. Sign up at uwmke.vivi.healthcare.
