Prevea says those who wish to be tested my sign up on their online patient portal, MyPrevea.

It takes just minutes to set up an account, complete a short assessment, and register for a test.

Upon registration, MyPrevea users are able to choose between three drive-through testing sites:

  • Prevea Ashwaubenon Health Center – 2502 S. Ashland Ave., Ashwaubenon

Anyone experiencing severe and life-threatening COVID-19 symptoms should call 911. If they prefer to travel to an emergency room on their own, they should call the hospital prior to their arrival to explain their symptoms. This will provide the emergency department time to prepare for their arrival and be sure others in the area will be protected from the potential spread of infectious disease.
