State announces community-based COVID-19 testing sites now open to all

The State of Illinois is opening its community-based testing sites to anyone to get tested for COVID-19, regardless of symptoms or other criteria. Testing remains crucial to the state's efforts to prevent additional spread of the disease. 

No appointment, doctor referral or insurance is needed at state operated drive-thru sites and testing is available at no cost to the individual.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is recommending anyone who has recently been part of a mass gathering, including rallies and protests over the past week, get tested.
