SOUTH MILWAUKEE – On Monday, December 7th, 2020, the heath departments of Cudahy, Oak Creek and South Milwaukee/St. Francis have committed to support community testing through the end of December along with support from the State of Wisconsin and Wisconsin National Guard (WING).

I’m proud of the work of our local health departments in launching, maintaining and now extending this testing site. What should be a coordinated federal or state effort — testing for COVID-19 — has fallen to local health departments, and ours are stepping up, delivering hundreds of tests a day.
The goal: To get a better handle on where the virus is, so we can slow spread. And save lives.
In the last month, 626 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in South Milwaukee, with six people dying. Please stay safe and act responsibly, South Milwaukee.
