Brown County Public Health closes its community COVID-19 test site

DE PERE – Four days after a federal judge rejected mask mandates for air travel and public transportation, Brown County Public Health announced it would close its community’s COVID-19 test site on April 30.

“At present, we are confident that the existing COVID-19 test resources provided by our health and community partners will be sufficient to meet the testing needs of Brown County residents,” Brown County Public Health Officer Anna Nick said in a news release Friday. .

The Brown County community’s COVID-19 test site at the fairgrounds, 1500 Fort Howard Ave., has offered free COVID-19 testing to the public Wednesday through Sunday.

After April 30, Brown County residents are due to visit Bellin Health, Streu’s Pharmacy in Green Bay, Prevea, Walgreens, CVS or Lawyer Aurora Health for free PCR testing, though rapid testing at Streu’s Pharmacy costs $ 89. People without health insurance can receive free COVID-19 testing at the above locations.
