Free COVID-19 testing Dec. 3 in Macomb and Dec. 8 in Rushville

The Illinois Department of Public Health has several mobile testing teams that are dispatched to various locations around the state each week to provide COVID-19 testing.

On Thursday, December 3, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., an IDPH mobile testing site will be at Western Illinois University, Q Lot, Tanner Circle, 740 W. University Drive in Macomb in McDonough County.

On Tuesday, December 8, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., an IDPH mobile testing site will be at First United Methodist Church in Rushville in Schuyler County.

Anyone can be tested, regardless of symptoms or immigration status. There is no cost to individuals for testing, but they should bring their insurance cards if they have one. However, insurance is not required.

Specimens will be collected using a simple nasal swab. Drive-through and walk-up testing are both available at most locations.

Site locations are subject to change. Please check the Illinois Department of Public Health website at http://www.dph.illinois.gov/testing/mobile-testing-sites for the most current mobile testing site location information.
