COVID-19 Testing

​​​Keep in mind that testing is only one part of preventing the spread of COVID-19.  Please continue to wear a face covering​ and practice social distancing to help Take Care DePaul.

A variety of COVID-19 testing locations and options are available throughout Chicago and Illinois. As more information and testing options become available, we will continue to update this page. 

If you: 
  • Have symptoms: Get tested right away. Make an appointment in advance, and make sure to stay at least six feet from others and wear a face covering.
  • Don't have symptoms: Get tested five to nine days after your last known contact with the infected person or since your last high-risk activity, such as attending a large gathering or traveling to a state that has experienced a surge in new COVID-19 cases.
