Teams have collected more than 1 million specimens since April 2020 at testing sites to support the Wisconsin Department of Health Service’s efforts to expand COVID-19 testing.

Those seeking a test are urged to register online in advance using the Dynamics Testing and Registration Application (DTRA) program, which is also known as COVID Connect. Go to register.covidconnect.wi.gov/en-US.

After collecting the specimens at each site, the test kits are sent to a lab for analysis, and individual citizens receive their results via an email or a phone call within three to seven days following the test.
