Additional Testing Options

  • Via Your Mailbox. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services offers a service for requesting a test kit delivered to your mailbox. Find details on their website.
  • At-home testing. Buy an at-home test at a local pharmacy. These tests can provide quick results but can be less reliable so they should be followed up by a PCR test within 48 hours if possible, especially if you have symptoms and a negative at-home test or no symptoms and a positive at-home test. Negative at-home tests cannot be used to end quarantine after day 7 or as proof of a negative test for travel purposes. Anyone with symptoms and/or a positive at-home test should isolate. If you are receiving a follow up PCR test, isolate until you receive your PCR results. If you or your child has a positive at-home test, you can report your result and a case investigator will follow-up with you to discuss isolation and contact notification.

  • Your Healthcare Provider. If you have severe symptoms, contact your healthcare provider. Do not use healthcare providers for routine testing including asymptomatic screening, return-to-school or return-to-work testing, or testing for travel; instead, use one of the options listed above. 
  • UW-Madison Students and Staff. UW-Madison has testing available on campus for students and staff members.

Getting Your Results

Limit contact with others while you wait. Until you have your test results, limit contact with others. This is very important, especially if you have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, or if you have symptoms like fever, cough, and sore throat.

Expect a Call or Email with Your Results. People tested at our test sites with a PCR test usually hear back in 24-72 hours, but test results can take longer. We cannot expedite test results.

  • For negative and positive results: you will be emailed a secure link. You will be prompted to enter your name and date of birth to verify your identity, and then can view and print your results. If you didn’t provide an email address, you will be called with your results. Your results will include your full name, date of birth, result, result date, and test ID number if you need proof of your test. If you do not view your test results within three days, you will receive a call.
  • Expect an email with the option to set up a MyChart account. Everyone will receive an email allowing them to set up a My Chart account to view results. This is optional.
  • If you have a question or haven't received results: If it has been at least 5 days since you got tested at and you haven't received your results, call the Wisconsin COVID-19 Results Line at (866) 419-6988.
  • Consider making an appointment to get vaccinated.
