SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Public Health has several mobile testing teams that will be dispatched in Jackson and Jefferson counties throughout the week.
Here are the following stops:
- Nov. 10 and 12 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Carbondale

Anyone can be tested, regardless of symptoms or immigration status. There is no cost to the person for testing, but he/she should bring an insurance card. 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.
