(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Community Test Site will be open for the next two Wednesday’s. In a Facebook post, the Dodge County Health Department originally said that the site would be closed for the next two weeks. The health department’s office discovered late Friday that due to the sudden increase in demand for their services, the Wisconsin National Guard’s task force would not be able to support the testing site for the next two Wednesday’s. Dodge County Health Officer Abby Sauer learned yesterday morning, by authorities from the National Guard’s COVID vaccination and testing team, that they were once again re-doing their mission orders and will be supporting the site through December 15th. Sauer says they apologize for any challenges and inconvenience these mixed messages caused. She says, however, they are glad to be able to offer this service with support from the National Guard teams. The community testing site is located on 1701 North Spring Street in Beaver Dam and is open Wednesday’s from 11am to 5pm.
