COVID-19 testing at summer camps…The Oak Park Health Department is offering free COVID-19 testing to summer camps throughout the community. Regular testing, such as the SHIELD tests provided by local schools during the school year, is key to containing the spread of the virus. By offering this service to summer camps, the Health Department hopes to fill the gap until school resumes in the fall. For more information about setting up free testing at summer camps, call 708.358.5480 or email email@example.com.
