05/11/2020- As the COVID-19 pandemic stretches on, Wisconsin health officials are loosening the guidelines of who should be tested for the virus and increasing testing resources across the state. At this point, Marinette County Public Health Officer Molly Bonjean says those people who present even mild symptoms can be tested and, in addition to a fever, cough, and shortness of breath, there are a few more common COVID-19 symptoms that people should monitor for.
Bonjean says if a person is feeling ill they should contact their doctor to determine whether they need to be seen or tested. If a person is symptomatic and cannot be seen by their doctor or doesn’t have a primary care provider in the area, the can also take advantage of the free community testing site being operated by Marinette County Emergency Management and the Wisconsin National Guard at the Marinette County Highway Shop in Crivitz this Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
