New Kewaunee COVID-19 testing site open

Prevea Health is now doing free COVID-19 testing at two additional clinics, including its location in the City of Kewaunee. It is available only for those exhibiting symptoms or where contact tracing has determined exposure to a COVID positive individual. For now, testing is being conducted outdoors in a drive-through established in the clinic's parking lot so that patients can be seen inside for other reasons. Executive Director of Primary Care Quality and Innovation Amber Allen says the goal is to develop a new protocol once the extreme cold and snow of winter settles in.

 


Allen says that rapid result testing is not available yet, but it is something Prevea is looking at instituting. She says that nasal swabs today are much less intrusive than at the outset of the pandemic. A swab now is effective midway up a person's nasal cavity. Prevea has no plans to be a part of community testing at this time in Kewaunee County. Door County Public Health and the DCMC announced plans for regular events for area residents in a Facebook Live video on Thursday.
