COVID-19 Testing at Chicago Family Health Center
As we resume regular activities like going to a restaurant or visiting family and friends, please consider getting a COVID-19 test to ensure the safety of those around you. CFHC offers COVID-19 testing to anyone who wants to be tested and you do not need to be a CFHC patient to get tested.
Where do I go to get tested?
Drive-through and walk-up testing is available at CFHC South Chicago, 9119 S. Exchange Ave. (parking lot) Monday-Friday 1:00 P.M. -4:00 P.M. NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY FOR COVID-19 TESTING AT CFHC SOUTH CHICAGO. We encourage you to call 773-768-5000 to register to save time when you arrive for your test.
COVID -19 testing is also available at all other CFHC sites but an appointment will be necessary for testing. Click here for a list of CFHC sites that require an appointment. Call 773-768-5000 to schedule your appointment.
How much does COVID-19 testing cost?
COVID-19 testing is covered by insurance and Medicaid. If you do not have insurance, you will NOT incur any cost for COVID-19 testing and visits.
What does COVID-19 testing consist of?
A small swab (like a q-Tip) will be placed in your nose to obtain a mucous sample. This does not hurt but it may feel uncomfortable and possibly make you sneeze or cough.
Have you participated in recent protests or rallies?
We recommend you get a COVID-19 test as soon as possible and quarantine yourself until you receive your results.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
- For your safety and the safety of staff, always follow directions at the testing site
- You must wear a mask when you come for testing
- Anyone who is tested for COVID-19 must self-isolate until you receive your test results.
- If you take public transportation to get tested, keep your mask on until you get home
