COVID-19 Testing Available in December with Some Holiday Closures

University Health Services (UHS) has issued its on-campus COVID-19 testing schedule for December. Please plan ahead and allow for upcoming holiday closures of test sites. If you traveled for Thanksgiving and returned to the Madison area, assume you have been exposed to COVID-19. UHS recommends that you be tested 3–5 days after your return, and a second time 10–12 days after your return. If you are an employee working on campus, limit your contact with others until you know your test results are negative. Details about the different tests, testing locations, and scheduling an appointment can be found at
