(Beaver Dam) Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam and the Dodge County Public Health Department have opened a drive-thru coronavirus testing clinic. The stand-alone testing center is for Dodge County residents only and is aimed at making testing quicker and more efficient. Those who feel they may have COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath should call 877-998-0022.
A medical professional will conduct an over-the-phone screening to determine if a COVID-19 test is appropriate. If so, the individual will be directed to the drive-thru site for a test at no cost. The hospital and the county’s public health unit ask that those who have not been screened to refrain from entering the drive-thru line which will slow down the testing process. People who do test positive will be expected to self-quarantine for 14 days and/or instructed by Dodge County Public Health.
