Where & How To Get A Rapid Test in Chicago for Coronavirus COVID-19?

Khang T. Vuong, MHA24 Mar 2021

Rapid coronavirus testing is available throughout clinics in Chicago

If you have been determined by your healthcare provider to meet the criteria for testing, you will be advised that you need to have an in-person visit with a doctor at a testing center or a drive-through. The on-site doctor will then assess your risk and determine your eligibility for a COVD-19 test.

Rapid Testing Sites in Chicago

Due to limited quantities of rapid tests, you must meet the following criteria (for many clinics, however, this is not the case for every clinic): 

  1. Have symptoms (cough, sore throat, body aches, fever, chills) or
  2. Have had an actual exposure (someone you were in contact with who has tested positive for COVID-19)
