Rapid antigen tests, provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the UW System, includes off-campus students, faculty and staff and community members. This testing program was introduced in early November to test asymptomatic people in Wisconsin, which experienced a surge in positive cases of the virus.

Quarantine is appropriate to separate individuals who may have had contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.
