A mobile testing unit from the IL Department of Public Health will conduct COVID-19 testing in our area this weekend for anyone desiring a test.  While anyone may participate, testing is especially recommended for essential workers (including healthcare worker, first responders, grocery store/convenience store workers, and persons working with vulnerable populations).  Persons exhibiting COVID-like symptoms or who have been in contact with positive cases of COVID-19 are encouraged to be tested as well.

Insurance information will be collected at the time of service; however, there will be no cost to the individual.  A physician’s order is not required nor is an appointment necessary.  Persons requesting service need only check-in at the testing location.  Results are normally available within 2-3 days and persons will be contacted by their local health department.
