Before results came in for the first National Guard testing site held with the La Crosse County Health Department and City of Onalaska Thursday, the La Crosse County Health Department applied for a second testing site.
The Wisconsin National Guard tested 304 individuals at the site but had the capacity to test up to 400. La Crosse County Health Department Director Jen Rombalski said she was pleased with the turnout.
In the second application, the health department requested a two-day testing site. One day for individuals showing symptoms and another for those working in response agencies that deal with COVID-19. They anticipate the site will be held in downtown La Crosse around June 7-8, but more details will be released.
As of Friday, La Crosse County remained at 48 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Of those, 38 have recovered and non are currently hospitalized. The county has a 1.2 percent positive test rate.
