State Representative Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst) is hosting an outdoor drive-through COVID and antibody testing event in the parking lot of the Westmont Metra Station.
“As parents and students try to get back to work and school, they may need either a negative COVID test, or proof that they have been exposed and developed antibodies,” Rep. Mazzochi said. “As more vaccine doses become more available to the general population, people want to take into consideration when making their medical decisions whether they have already been exposed to and developed their own antibodies against the virus.”
Rep. Mazzochi has partnered with testing company IndiviDx to host the event. The outdoor event will be held in the Westmont Metra Station parking lot at 90 West Quincy Street. Interested test takers have the opportunity to come through on Friday, April 9th from 10am-5pm and on Saturday, April 10th from 10am-3pm. Testing is free to those who do not have insurance and available to everyone, regardless of symptoms.
People testing for COVID will park in parking spots and stay in their cars as medical staff will approach each car for testing. Those who want to get tested for antibodies will need to get out of their cars and receive the test in a sectioned off area next to the tent. Test results will be available within 24-48 hours. Those with any questions are asked to call Rep. Mazzochi’s office at 630-852-8633.
