UW-Parkside temporarily suspends COVID community testing; campus to re-start testing with new vendor

Published: September 30, 2021

SOMERS, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is temporarily suspending its COVID-19 testing for community members effective today, September 30. This pause in community testing comes as the federal contract with eTrueNorth for COVID testing expires and a new partnership with Weber Health Logistics begins.

UW-Parkside Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Enrollment Services Tammy McGuckin thanked eTrueNorth for their services. In conjunction with the transition to a new testing vendor, UW-Parkside is exploring options to relocate the community testing site to a more accessible location. On-going construction work on the campus has created challenges in providing the testing services at Tallent Hall, McGuckin said. 

Community testing is on hold until a new location can be identified. Community members may still get tested at other locations around Kenosha and Racine counties and southeastern Wisconsin.

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside is committed to high-quality educational programs, creative and scholarly activities, and services responsive to its diverse student population, and its local, national, and global communities. We are a dynamic learning community grounded in academic excellence and focused on student success, diversity, inclusion, and community engagement.  The campus serves as a premier comprehensive public institution and a destination of choice, serving as a focal point of local, regional, and global progress.
