Illinois Closing Down COVID Testing Sites

The Illinois Department of Public Health announced Friday it will close 10 COVID-19 community testing sites due to a drop in demand. The IDPH said the sites are now conducting less than 1% of statewide tests, with the accessibility to free at-home testing a major factor.
