La Crosse County Health Department is partnering with the Wisconsin National Guard and the City of Onalaska to host a community drive-through COVID-19 testing site. This is a nasal swab test. Testing is still available at local health care partners for those with symptoms.
This testing site is open to anyone age 5 years and older who is currently experiencing any of the following symptoms. Please note that even those with mild symptoms are encouraged to attend.
-shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
-chills or repeated shaking with chills

This testing site is intended for La Crosse County residents. Note that lines may become long and attendees need to remain in their vehicles. Bring a book or other in-car entertainment. No antibody testing will be completed at this time.
Additional guidance including a traffic entry point map will be added as they are available. Status updates on the number of tests remaining will be shared periodically on the 21st on this Facebook page and on our website: https://lacrossecounty.org/covid19/testing-information
You’re invited to our next educational session taking place virtually, on the last Wednesday of this Month of May!
Self-reflection and actionable personal growth are key elements to deconstructing oppressive forces in our daily lives. This discussion-based workshop will introduce participants to prevalent characteristics of white supremacy culture that show up and persist within our professional structures and environments. Resources for further introspection related to personal dismantling and decolonization of the way we look at and perform professionalism will be provided.
