Gov. Tony Evers and system officials announced Thursday that the money will come from the federal coronavirus relief bill that Congress passed in May.  

They say the money will cover hundreds of thousands of tests for students.

Faculty and staff have criticized regents' decision to offer in-person instruction this year, saying it's not safe.
