Illinois COVID Test Sites

The Illinois Department of Public Health will hold several mobile testing sites in northern Illinois this week. Anyone can be tested, regardless of symptoms or immigration status.  There is no cost for testing, but they should bring their insurance card 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.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
