COVID-19 Testing and Wait Times
As the omicron variant quickly spreads throughout Illinois, RUSH is experiencing an increased volume of patients in our Emergency Departments. We expect that wait times will continue to increase. If you need a COVID test, RUSH offers a number of other readily available solutions.
- Get a COVID-19 test appointment at RUSH using online scheduling.
- COVID-19 testing sites are available at locations all around Illinois. Use the State of Illinois' interactive map to find a convenient testing location near you.
- Chicago residents can contact Connect Chicago for a mail-in, at-home test or visit one of their two in-person testing sites.
If you’re not sure if you need a test or have other questions about COVID-19 or other health conditions, please consider an E-Visit or on-demand video visit with a RUSH On Demand provider. RUSH On Demand providers can also help you schedule a test if you have symptoms.
DispatchHealth also offers in-person treatment at home from experienced medical providers within a few hours.
