Hanover Park MetraHANOVER PARK – To help Illinoisans keep themselves, their families and their communities healthy, State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) announced the Illinois Department of Public Health will operate a temporary COVID-19 testing site Saturday, Dec. 12 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hanover Park Metra Station, located at 1975 W. Lake St.

“Widespread testing is an important part of controlling the spread of COVID-19, and it’s the best way we can make sure we aren’t putting ourselves and others at risk,” said Murphy. “Getting tested is fast, easy and free, and I urge everyone to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Anyone will be able to get tested at the site for free, regardless of symptoms. No appointment is necessary, but daily testing supplies are limited, so residents are encouraged to visit early.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell.

However, people with COVID-19 can spread the virus before they start showing symptoms, and some individuals may be asymptomatic. For this reason, IDPH recommends testing for anyone who has recently been part of a large gathering or has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.
