Jones cvd testing 041520CHAMPAIGN – The COVID-19 testing site at the Market Place Shopping Center in Champaign reopened Wednesday morning after being closed earlier in the week, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) announced.

“As we continue to fight the spread of coronavirus, testing remains a top priority,” Bennett said. “This essential community service will help put a stop to this pandemic.”

All individuals with symptoms are encouraged to seek testing at these Community Based Testing Sites. Priority is given to first responders, health care workers, seniors, those with underlying conditions or with mild illness in areas with a high number of COVID-19 cases.

Additional accommodations have been made for some individuals with or without COVID-like symptoms, such as healthcare workers, first responders, employees of correctional facilities, individuals exposed to confirmed COVID-19 patients, employees that support critical infrastructure (grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, gas stations, public utilities, factories, childcare and sanitation), all local and state government employees, and individuals with compromised immune systems or chronic medical conditions.

The Illinois Department of Public Health said the following is what to know before seeking a test from the site:

  • This is a free service that can be obtained without a doctor’s referral. While this is a free service, people will be asked to show photo identification and healthcare employee or first responder ID/badge, if applicable.
  • Patients utilizing drive-thru testing sites must be seated at a functioning window. Once a person gets in line at the CBTS, they will not be permitted to exit their car. For the safety of the testing personnel, drive-thru sites will not be able to accommodate walk-up individuals.
  • Due to the demand for this service, IDPH anticipates there could be significant wait times associated with these drive-thru community-based testing sites. If someone is experiencing a medical emergency, they are urged to call their doctor or emergency department to seek immediate care and instructions.

The site is located in the parking lot of Market Place Shopping Center at 2000 N. Neil Street and will offer testing services seven days a week from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., or while daily supplies last.
