MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- In Milwaukee County, there's been a dramatic drop in the number of people being tested for COVID-19.

During Tuesday's briefing, officials acknowledged that attention has shifted lately to demonstrations and visiting bars and restaurants that are reopening.

They remind people not to let their guard down, to wear masks and practice social distancing in order to prevent a spike in cases. And if you have even the slightest of symptoms, get a test.

"If people are feeling the symptoms of COVID-19, I think it's very, very important for them to get tested as quickly as possible," Mayor Tom Barrett said. "Again, we got 15 sites, you can call 211 if you're feeling symptomatic."

People with and without symptoms can visit two community testing sites in the city -- at Custer Stadium near Barack Obama school on the north side and UMOS on the south side.
