Red Cliff will host a free COVID-19 testing event with help from the Wisconsin National Guard from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Community Health Center, 36745 Aiken Road, Bayfield.

There will be 450 test kits available, and everyone is welcome. A parent or legal guardian must accompany anyone between the ages of 5 and 17.

Pre-registration is not required, but testing will proceed much faster with it. Call 715-779-3707, ext. 2319 to pre-register or visit register.covidconnect.wi.gov.

The testing event comes on the heels of the Bayfield County Health Department banning interscholastic sports and competitions due to a spike in positive COVID-19 cases.

The county had tallied a total of 115 confirmed cases as of Wednesday, with 30 being active and 84 recovered. One death has been recorded.
