The Oak Park Department of Public Health is providing COVID-19 PCR and rapid testing at various locations. All testing provided by the Health Department is free and insurance is not required.
Free at-home COVID-19 tests are now available to be shipped to your residence. A mailing address is all that is required. You do not need insurance, a credit card or any other identification.
Visit www.covidtests.gov to order free at-home tests.
The case numbers reported by the Health Department each week reflect only the cases confirmed through an official testing site such a pharmacy, physician's office, health department, school SHIELD testing, etc. If you test positive on a home test and decide not to test at an official testing facility, please alert the Health Department of your positive home test by emailing name, age, zip code and date of positive test to firstname.lastname@example.org. While this won't be included in the official tally, it will help give the Health Department a sense of the number of new cases beyond the official tally it receives from the state.
