Churches needed for COVID-19 testing sites
Wisconsin Council of Churches Community Health Program

MADISON — Over the past six months, the Wisconsin Council of Churches Community Health Program has been asking congregations to serve as sites for vaccination clinics. WCC has helped facilitate 58 clinics and vaccinate at least 474 people. 

The state of Wisconsin is bringing back COVID-19 testing sites, at least through the winter months. Previously, these sites had been large and centralized. This time, they’ll be more distributed. That leaves room for local churches to get testing out where it belongs, in their community. To volunteer, fill out a survey at, and a DHS representative will get in touch to make arrangements.

One caution — the DHS doesn’t confirm the schedule until the week before, so it’s best to be both flexible and ready to go on short notice. The WCC team is available to help, and after the event, participating communities are eligible for a $250 facility use payment.
