Press Release

SPOONER, WI -- Effective July 5, 2021 Spooner Health’s COVID-19 testing site will be closed to the public. The site will remain open for pre-procedural testing only. The closure is due in large part to lack of demand for COVID-19 testing in Washburn County. With a successful vaccine roll-out, the need for COVID-19 testing has decreased dramatically.

Mike Schafer, CEO of Spooner Health says, “I am proud that Spooner Health was able to provide such an important and in-demand service during the height of the pandemic. I know our mobile testing really helped keep care close to home, so our community members did not have to travel far. COVID-19 is still very present however, so we are still urging individuals to seek testing elsewhere if it is needed.”

For individuals who are experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19 and need a test, please contact your primary care provider.
