New Rapid COVID-19 Testing Site Opens On Chicago’s South Side

The Chicago Baptist Institute is now serving as a rapid COVID-19 testing site to expand testing access to the city’s South Side.

CVS Health, in partnership with two Chicago nonprofits, opened a free rapid COVID-19 testing site Wednesday on the city’s South Side. Located at the Chicago Baptist Institute, the site will expand rapid testing to communities disproportionately impacted by the virus.

Reset brings on the site’s project leader to learn more.
