COVID-19 testing to be held in Alton next week

SIHF Healthcare, in cooperation with the Madison County Housing Authority, Alton Housing Authority, Madison County Health Department, and Touchette Regional Hospital,  will hold a one-time COVID-19 test collection at four public housing locations in Alton.

Appointments are not required, and there will be no advance screening process.

On Wednesday, May 27, test collections will be held from 10 a.m. noon at the Alton Manor Community Center and from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Alton Acres Community Center.

On Thursday, May 28, test collections will be held from 10:00 a.m. till 12 noon at the Alton Pointe Community Center and from 1:00 till 3:00 p.m. at the Oakwood Estates Community Center.

Walk-ins are welcome, and you do not need to be a resident of that particular public housing to attend. The public is welcome.

Everyone must bring a photo identification card. Those who have health insurance are asked to bring that card as well. Those without insurance are eligible for testing, as there is no charge for testing.

    If there is no charge why do those with insurance nees to bring their insurance cards? I have no intention of being tested but there is no reason for anyone to bring insurance cards if there is no charge
