COVID-19 Testing

Important Information

  • Due to a shortage of testing supplies, rapid COVID-19 PCR testing is available only by appointment and only for patients who do NOT have symptoms.
  • If you are exhibiting symptoms, you will receive a rapid antigen test. Additionally, if necessary, a send-out PCR test (results in 3-5 working days) is available.
  • Testing is available at all locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

Re-Testing for COVID-19 after a previous positive

We will only re-test a person that has previously tested positive for COVID-19 at least 6 weeks prior.  Based on information on the CDC website, a person who has recovered from COVID-19 may continue to have a positive test result for several weeks, even though they are not spreading COVID-19.  If your employer or return to school is requesting a retest, please inform our staff of the need for a retest. For employees please see our Return to Work Strategy.

RAPID COVID-19 TESTING AVAILABLE FOR ALL PATIENTS

Due to a shortage of testing supplies, an appointment is required for COVID-19 testing if you are not experiencing symptoms.
