The state is taking additional steps to identify anyone in Illinois sick with Coronavirus and help stop and spread of the disease. Over the weekend, the Governor, the Mayor of Chicago and state wide health officials outlined a coordinated effort to combat it. As of this week, the state will be able to test for the virus in three locations in Illinois. But as testing ramps up Governor Pritzker says the best thing to do is what you’d do when trying to avoid a cold or flu.
Illinois was the first state to be able to test for the virus and voluntary testing will begin at select hospitals around the state in order to track possible infections.
