I’ve had many conversations regarding the lack of access to COVID-19 tests in communities of color.
After legislator’s expressed concern to the Governor’s office over the shortage of testing in the South Suburbs, Illinois has expanded testing in communities of color.
A state-run suburban drive-through testing center is open and operating in Markham. The testing center is running hundreds of tests per day with results coming back to patients faster than federally-contracted labs. This testing site in the south suburbs welcomes those who may be low-income, uninsured or underinsured.
The testing is at a former multi-lane Environmental Protection Agency Emission Testing Facility. Persons remain inside their vehicle when tested. The address is: 3824 West 159th Place, Markham.
