Governor Tony Evers has allocated millions of dollars, for the University of Wisconsin System to deal with the coronavirus on its campuses this fall.

The money – $32 million to support coronavirus testing throughout the UW System and UW- Madison – comes from Wisconsin’s share of federal CARES Act funds.

About 424 million will help campuses test students living in residence halls, symptomatic students and students who have come into contact with symptomatic students.

The money will also help pay for personal protective equipment, with roughly $8.3 million to be used for equipment and testing on the Madison campus.
