SIH Drive Through Testing Clinics: Carbondale & Marion
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 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.
COVID-19 Testing Locations
SIH has two drive-through testing sites. SIH Urgent Care in Marion and the former Region's Bank building at Rt. 13 and Poplar in Carbondale.
