    • For the drive-thru testing sites that do not require an appointment, tests are administered on a first-come, first-served basis. Pre-registration DOES NOT GUARANTEE a test on that day. When all tests available for the day have been administered, testing is shut down for the remainder of the day as capacity has been reached.
    • When planning your testing date, Mondays have had high volumes causing testing capacity to be reached early. Tuesdays and Thursdays have seen lower volumes. Hours vary during the week.
    • You may need to wait in your idling vehicle for an extended period of time. Arrive with sufficient gas in your tank.
    • Waukesha County reserves the right to close any testing site due to inclement weather and safety concerns.
    • COVID Test results by phone or email from a community testing site, other than the Summit Clinical Labs at Malone Park, will likely take at least 3-7 days during the holiday season. Throughout the month of December, testing results are anticipated to take more time due to high numbers of tests and longer shipping schedules because to holiday purchases.
    • If you have been waiting for more than 5 days for test results from a community testing site other than Summit Clinical Labs at Malone Park, call the Results Hotline at (866) 419-6988. Available Monday-Saturday
