COVID-19 Resources: Testing, Vaccine Information and Service Updates


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 reserve a test time online or call the SIH COVID-19 Hotline at 844-988-7800, seven days per week from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., to speak with a staff member to reserve a test time.

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 or MyChart result for both positive and negative results.
