WisconsinEye senior producer Steve Walters asked the Wisconsin National Guard on Tuesday, May 18, which was the 7th Congressional special election day, about where the 1,000 guard members were deployed and being used. 650 collected COVID-19 test specimens in 10 counties; 160 were poll workers in the 7th CD special election; 38 worked at the call center notifying people of COVID-19 positive results; 50 worked as medical and administrative staff at three voluntary self-isolation centers; 20 received, repackaged and distributed PPE equipment; and 17 supported the Dane County Coroner's Office. The 115th Fighter Wing pilots also performed flyovers to honor health care workers and first responders.
