Walmart in Joliet testing healthcare professionals for COVID-19


Share post:

Wal-Mart announced today two federal sites in the Chicago area will work to serve first responders and healthcare workers potentially exposed to COVID-19.

These sites are not for the general public.  They will work as an outlet to test every doctor, nurse, pharmacists, EMT and other health and other health and emergency professional who is selflessly supporting the response.  U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in a public-private partnership announced a week ago, will be aiding in those efforts.

“We have worked closely with public healthcare officials to prioritize the health and safety of our associates and those visiting our parking lots. Those volunteering will be equipped with proper protective equipment, and all patients will be required to remain in their cars at all times. As these two pilot locations begin testing, we know that they will help us better understand how we can best support and supplement state efforts moving forward.” a Walmart statement read on Sunday.

The Walmart in Joliet (2424 W. Jefferson St.) has been designated as one of the testing site for first responders and healthcare professionals.
