Updated at noon April 7, with more testing locations
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker predicts the state will be able to test 10,000 people a day by then. The Missouri Health Department said it has the capacity for 2,000 tests a day, not including the capacity of private labs in the state.
To be eligible for a test, you first must be screened by the testing site by phone or online. You cannot bypass the screening, even if a doctor has recommended that you get testing. It is mandatory.
Tests are in limited supply, so health care workers are reserving them for people with coronavirus symptoms, including a cough or fever. The majority of these testing sites are not open to walk-in patients.
Testing is prioritized for:
- Hospitalized patients showing COVID-19 symptoms.
- Residents of retirement homes and other “congregate living facilities” that house individuals over 65 or people with chronic medical conditions.
- Any person who developed COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of contact with someone who has either a confirmed or pending lab test.
