COVID Testing Sites Planned
Madison County will host COVID-19 Community Testing Sites at the Korte Rec Center, 1 Nagel Drive in Highland, on Thursday, August 13 and in the back parking lot at the corner of Second and Clay streets behind the Madison County Administration Building, 157 North Main Street in Edwardsville on Sunday, August 16.
These come at the end of a week-long campaign held over a seven-day period in seven locations by the Madison County Health Department and Madison County Leadership Council Faith Alliance. With the exception of a site in Collinsville, which was open on Tuesday, the rest of the testing was done in Alton and Madison.
Individuals with or without symptoms can be tested. No appointment is needed. Masks are required.
Testing sites are open to the public (adults and children over six months) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The test will be conducted with a nasal swab.
Participants must have a valid phone number as they will receive a call with their results. Due to lab delays, it may take up to a week to get results; please do not call, they will call you.
In addition, there are stationary testing sites at these locations:
• Respiratory Care Clinic of Bethalto
• HSHS Medical Group – Troy
• MedExpress – Collinsville
•Anderson Hospital (Healthcare Building at Illinois Routes 159 and 162) – Maryville.
The times of operation and criteria for testing vary by site. It is strongly encouraged to review the information online for each site and consider calling them with further questions.
Detailed information for each of these Testing Sites can be found at https://www.co.madison.il.us/departments/health/corona_virus.php under the Testing Options Section or on the Madison County Health Department COVID-19 Dashboard on the Testing Sites Tab.
