Carthage and COVID-19


On-Campus Testing and Resources for Students

Testing is available from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Monday through Friday in the Health and Counseling Center. Students must call ahead. All appointments for testing will be coordinated through the Carthage Health and Counseling Center by calling 262-551-5710. 

Testing is reserved for students who are symptomatic or who have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive. The availability of testing is dependent on supply and staff availability from the Kenosha County Department of Health and Froedtert Hospital. The College is finalizing plans for community testing and more information will be available soon.

If you experience flu-like symptoms (such as fever, cough, aches and pains, tiredness, difficulty breathing, etc.), call the Carthage Health and Counseling Center at 262-551-5710 or a local walk-in clinic as soon as possible for an assessment. Please note: You must call first. 

The Health and Counseling Center is typically open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. Outside of those hours, it is advised you to go to an urgent care facility or emergency room, depending on the severity of your symptoms. The Health and Counseling Center’s website has a list of providers in the area. 

Population Testing

Carthage is working with Froedtert Workforce Health to offer population testing of students and employees. We will offer 70 tests per week, and all tests will be on campus by appointment. Individuals will be selected for testing at random, and will be notified by email a week in advance, so they can sign up for a specific time slot. 

The College continues to work with Froedtert Workforce Health to explore opportunities to increase testing to get to our goal of testing 250 students and employees each week as a way to identify asymptomatic cases of the virus. 

Smell Testing for COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring

Carthage is providing a free smell test to students and employees to complete on their own. The scratch-and-sniff card features eight familiar scents that each person should identify from a list of options, multiple-choice style. New and returning students will receive the card during check-in, while faculty and staff should pick up theirs at the Human Resources office in Lentz Hall. Each person should report the test results while completing the #StaySafeCarthage Daily Check-in. Three or more misidentified odors could signal the presence of COVID-19.

In addition, the eight-item test establishes a baseline for all who opt into a longer Carthage research study that the Psychological Science Department is undertaking. Participants will monitor themselves daily to make sure they can still smell three provided items. To enroll, visit the Smell Study website.
