DuPage County Health Department is announcing a new COVID-19 Testing Site in DuPage County opening Monday, Nov. 23 from 10 am to 6 pm at the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park. The site will provide up to 600 tests per day. Visitors are encouraged to pre-register at testdirectly.com. Please note: pre-registration does not guarantee testing or a place in line for that day.
Testing is free but limited tests are available per day. This is a drive-thru testing site where individuals will give themselves a nasal swab test with instructions from staff.
Due to the demand for this service, we anticipate there could be significant wait times associated with these drive-thru community-based testing sites. Please be patient. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, you are urged to call your doctor or emergency department to seek immediate care and instructions.
To help reduce wait times, you may pre-register prior to your visit at www.testdirectly.com. Please note, each individual being tested must create an account, a staff member will register anyone who does not have an email or who has not already created an account, and pre-registering does not hold a place in line or guarantee testing for that day.
Only people who arrive in cars will be allowed to be tested. People will need to remain seated in their car at a working window (window must go up and down). Once in line at the CBTS, you will not be permitted to exit your car. Bathrooms are not available on-site. For the safety of the testing personnel, the drive-thru sites will not accept walk-up individuals.
