Rapid-Result Antigen Testing Comes to UWS

The nasal antigen tests are done by the patient after with supervision by medical professionals and results come back in 15 minutes.

SUPERIOR, Wis. – A free rapid-result antigen testing site is now open at University of Wisconsin-Superior for any resident of Minnesota or Wisconsin regardless of symptoms.

The nasal antigen tests are done by the patient after with supervision by medical professionals and results come back in 15 minutes.

If a person tests positive they’ll then get a standard back-of-the-nose test by a professional to confirm the presence of COVID-19.

“As an anchor institution we have always been here to serve our community and this is an opportunity to again step up and serve the community during a time of great need in our local area,” says Harry Anderson, the dean of students at UWS.

Pre-registration is required through the website here.
