LIBERTYVILLE – COVID-19 drive-thru testing will be offered at Advocate Condell Medical Center’s Centre Club two days a week starting Sept. 24.
Testing will be available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays through Oct. 16 at the health club, 200 W. Golf Road. Appointments are required. Scheduling can be done through the Advocate Aurora LiveWell app or by calling 877-819-5034.
The test comes with no out-of-pocket cost to the patient. Advocate Aurora Health will either bill a patient’s insurance or absorb the cost of the test for patients who do not have insurance.
Drive-thru testing is available for people who are showing at least one COVID-19 symptom or who believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 in their household or through significant exposure at work or in public. COVID-19 symptoms are cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, body or muscle aches, headache, fatigue, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or recent loss of taste or smell.
After the test, people should stay at home and avoid contact with others until receiving a result, which should be available in three to seven days.
Results will be delivered via the Advocate Aurora Health LiveWell mobile app. If results are positive, a staff member will contact patients. Negative results for patients who don’t have the LiveWell app will be mailed to their home.
