Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The state has started distributing and receiving at-home test kits for COVID-19.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says more than 12 thousand kits have been ordered and more than 16 hundred have been returned as of last week.
Users collect a saliva sample while a testing supervisor monitors the process via Zoom. The kits are then placed in a UPS drop box and the test results are returned by mail.
Tests are available through the DHS website, and results typically come back 48 to 72 hours later.
