The City of Evanston’s Health and Human Services Department is partnering with AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital to offer two COVID-19 health screening and testing events to Evanston residents who may not otherwise have access to testing or online virtual health visits.

Community testing will be offered at the James Park Field House parking lot, located on Mulford Street west of Dodge Avenue and the Levy Senior Center, on the following days while supplies last:

Monday, June 22, 10 a.m. to noon

Monday, June 29, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Testing will be offered in a drive-through format; however, walk-ins will also be accepted. Testing is free, and no appointment is needed to participate. A doctor will be on site to answer questions, and Spanish-speaking team members will be available to assist, as needed.

Participants in need will be provided with a face covering upon arrival, and should maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from non-family members at the event.

Test results are expected to be available within four days of testing. AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital will follow up with all who are tested to provide results, whether positive or negative, and additional education and instructions, as needed.

In addition to these community testing events, residents can access free testing at State community-based testing sites. Testing may also be provided through a resident’s primary healthcare provider.
