The State of Illinois is sponsoring a community COVID test site for two days in Christian County. On Friday, October 16th and Sunday, October 18th, you can get tested for COVID at the Taylorville Fire Department which is located at 202 North Main Street in Taylorville. The testing will run from 9 AM until 5 PM.
Simple nasal swabs will be used, you will be called with results within 4-7 days, there is no cost for testing, and anyone can get tested. You do not have to have symptoms or be sick to be tested. If you have an insurance card, Chris-Mont EMA would like you to bring it with, but you will not be charged and you can still be tested if you don’t have insurance.
