State Community-Based Testing Site Moving to St. Clair Square in Metro East

SPRINGFIELD – In an effort to increase testing, the State operated community-based testing site in the Metro East is moving on Thursday, December 3, 2020, to St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights.  Previously located at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center in East St. Louis, St. Clair Square has more physical space for cars to line up, which could increase the number of people the site can test each day.  On average, approximately 300 specimens a day were collected at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center.  The Illinois Department of Public Health will continue to deploy mobile testing teams to locations in East St. Louis, including to 4601 State St. every Sunday and Monday from 8:00am – 4:00pm.

The new testing site will be located at:

St. Clair Square
134 St. Clair Square
Fairview Heights, IL

Testing at all State operated community-based testing sites is open to anyone.  People do not need to be exhibiting symptoms, have a doctor’s order, make an appointment, or have insurance to be tested.

A list of State operated community-based testing sites, as well as other testing sites, can be found on the Illinois Department of Public Health website at http://www.dph.illinois.gov/testing.
