Senator CullertonVILLA PARK— State Senator Tom Cullerton is urging residents to take advantage of the two new testing sites located within DuPage County in Wheaton and Willowbrook. The new Wheaton drive-through COVID-19 testing site will open at the DuPage County Complex, 421 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, starting on Tuesday, June 16. All residents of DuPage County can be tested, and no appointment, doctor referral, or insurance is needed.

“Testing is key to combating and ending the spread of COVID-19 throughout our communities,” Cullerton said. “I hope with early detection residents will be able to receive timely health guidance and help reduce the spread of this awful pandemic.”

The DuPage County COVID-19 testing site, which will be accessible through the County Campus’ main entrance off County Farm Road, will be open Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., or until 400 tests are completed each day. The COVID-19 test is free. To ensure the safety of workers on site, the test will be done while residents are sitting in their vehicle. Vehicles must have a functioning window. No motorcycles will be allowed to enter the site due to safety concerns.

In addition, DuPage County is supporting a testing site in Willowbrook, which will double the number of individuals who are able to be tested and receive a physical health check. Beginning this week, and continuing until August, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, testing will be available through Pillars Community Health with drive-up testing at Anne M. Jeans Elementary School, 16W631 91st St, Willowbrook. Residents do not need to be an existing to Pillars Community Health patient or enrolled at Anne Jeans School to be tested.

Testing is available to anyone with symptoms of COVID-19; anyone with a known exposure to COVID-19 (such as those who have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19); or asymptomatic people who are high-risk patients, first responders, health care workers, or essential workers and wish to be tested.

Limited tests are available and appointments are required for this testing site. To schedule the appointment, please call 708-PILLARS (708-745-5277) and follow the prompts. Appointments will be scheduled in the following time slots: Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to noon and Thursdays, 9 a.m. to .1 p.m. Insurance will be billed; if you do not have insurance, please call Pillars Community Health at 708-PILLARS (708-745-5277) to discuss financial options.

"I encourage anyone experiencing symptoms to please get tested and help save lives,” Cullerton said. “We all must continue to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19."
