KENOSHA COUNTY ⏤ Starting Friday, the Wisconsin National Guard weekly COVID-19 testing site in the county will be housed at a new location.
The testing site will now rest at the Salem Lakes Fire and Rescue Station No. 1, 11252 254th Ct., in Trevor. Testing will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
Testing will also take place at the location during the same hours on Dec. 18.
The testing site may open for more dates, depending on National Guard availability, the county said in a release.
Though no appointments are necessary, county officials encourage residents to register in advance at https://register.covidconnect.wi.gov.
Takes the place of Bristol site
The Salem Lakes Fire and Rescue site replaces the Kenosha County Center in Bristol. Prior to the upcoming Dec. 11 testing, the Bristol site had hosted personnel each Friday since October.
Another National Guard site at the Kenosha County Job Center has, too, concluded its run and will no longer operate. Open each Monday, the KCJC site had operated since October.
However, testing remains available five days a week at the former Kenosha Fire Station No. 3, 2121 Roosevelt Rd., in Uptown in the city.
This service is provided by local, independent pharmacy Modern Apothecary on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and by the Kenosha Fire Department on Wednesdays and Fridays.

- Tuesdays, 2 to 6 p.m. (through Dec. 29);

- Fridays, noon to 6 p.m. (through Dec. 18);

Available to state residents, 5 and up

Typically, residents should expect results within seven days, accessible via the Wisconsin COVID-19 Result Hotline at 866-419-6988.
Until they receive results, those tested should remain at home if they have been exposed to a positive case.
