JOLIET – A Joliet state-run COVID-19 testing site had to be moved from the Inwood Athletic Club due to overwhelming demand after 100 cars lined up before the facility opened. 

Traffic trickle onto the main street forcing the state to consider the move.

Tuesday morning, the state testing site reopened at the Mission Boulevard Soccer Complex in Joliet.  Shortly after 7am, dozens of cars had packed the line at the new site.

The state is set to be on location at the new site at 640 Mission Blvd in Joliet through the end of the month.  No appointment necessary and you don’t need symptoms to be tested.  The testing offered by the state is not a rapid test and will take anywhere from 48-72 hours to be returned.
