Employees Sought to Serve as Paid Volunteers for Campus Testing Program

University Health Services anticipates that they will administer up to 70,000 tests weekly in the campus COVID-19 testing program. Significant staffing will be required to support the testing program throughout the spring semester. To help make this program a success, UW–Madison employees are being invited to voluntarily dedicate some of their paid working hours as COVID-19 Health Technicians. Health Technicians assist with the collection of test samples, prepare the test site and equipment, and perform administrative duties. They do not do any actual testing. Every employee serving as a Health Technician will wear full personal protective equipment (PPE). Training will be provided. Details are available at hr.wisc.edu/covid19/testing-program-volunteers.
