UW System Antigen Testing Program Behind Weekly Goals, Though Progress Being Made | Wisconsin Public Radio

University of Wisconsin System Interim President Tommy Thompson is calling the plan to use antigen testing to screen all dorm residents for the new coronavirus a success, while also noting the UW System is behind its goals for weekly surveillance.

Some campuses, like UW-Green Bay have had few COVID-19 positives reported…

Thompson pointed to UW-Green Bay as an example of campuses doing well with cases and testing. The University has tested a total of 1,721 students under the UW System antigen testing program, which is just over its entire dorm population. 

Despite outbreaks and two of 13 UW System campuses pausing in-person instruction, Thompson told Wisconsin Health News on Friday that closing UW campuses “is not on the table.”
