The Logan County Health Department is offering free drive-thru coronavirus testing starting Wednesday at the Logan County Fairgrounds.
Kara Davis with the Health Department tells Regional Radio News she contacted the State of Illinois coordinated roughly two weeks' worth of days available for the public to participate. Testing is not restricted to just Logan County residents.
The nasal-swab will be the test for the drive-thru site because Davis indicates it is the most accurate. She explains those that come out do need to have an ID and if possible, proof of insurance. The tests are free but the labs processing the samples are hoping to recoup some of their costs.
For those that are planning to come to the fairgrounds should enter through the east entrance off Route-66/Lincoln Parkway and plan to exit through the Jefferson Street side of the fairgrounds.
