SIH Drive Through Testing Clinics
The first step in getting tested is calling our COVID Hotline
Who is eligible for testing?The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) now allows testing for anyone with COVID-like symptoms, illness or risk factors without a doctor’s order. Testing is also available for those with or without symptoms who work in a healthcare facility, jails or prisons, first responders (paramedics, emergency medical technicians, law enforcement, firefighters) and/or support critical infrastructure (grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, gas stations, public utilities, factories, childcare and sanitation).
How to get tested
SIH asks individuals to call the SIH COVID-19 Hotline at 844-988-7800 to speak with a medical professional about your risk and/or symptoms and reserve a time for your desired test at either of our Drive Through Testing Clinics.
SIH staff wearing personal protective equipment will perform specimen collection, or nasal swabs, for COVID-19, flu and other respiratory illnesses through the driver's side or passenger side window. Patients will not have to leave their cars.
Once you receive testing
Samples are sent to a third-party lab for testing results and typically takes 2-3 days to process (but can take up to a week in some cases). After testing, you will receive a phone call for both positive and negative results.
