On Thursday, the University of Chicago Medicine system announced that it will expand its free COVID-19 testing to 1,000 tests each day for residents of Chicago’s South Side and suburban Harvey. The tests will be available at both the University of Chicago Medical Center in Hyde Park and the Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey.
UChicago Medicine (UCM) started to offer free onsite testing on March 15, but was limited to conducting an average of 200 daily tests for employees and eligible patients who have displayed symptoms of influenza-like illness, according to the UCM website.
