The Wisconsin Department of Health Services set up a hotline where people can get the results of tests for COVID-19 at Wisconsin National Guard test sites.

A large number of people did not provide valid phone numbers or haven’t answered the phone when called with the results of their tests, according to a news release issued by Douglas County Public Health Officer Kathy Ronchi,

The hotline, which opened Monday, Aug. 3, will allow people tested at a Wisconsin National Guard site to get their results.

Tests were administered in Superior to 275 people and 204 in Solon Springs last week.

If you’ve been waiting more than five days for your results, or if you need a copy of your results, call the Wisconsin COVID-19 Results Line at 866-419-6988. The COVID-19 Results Line is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Once you call, you’ll need to provide:

  • The date of your test
  • The National Guard testing site you visited
  • Your name and date of birth

In addition to getting your results over the phone, officials can mail your test results by request through the Results Line.

Wait to call the Results Line until five days after your test to ensure the results are available.
