The demand for COVID-19 rapid testing has declined, in Adams County (which is a good thing I think). Because of that, the Adams County Health Department (ACHD) has decided to change the hours to get a rapid test done. Rapid Testing hours will now be Monday - Friday from 1 pm to 4 pm, at the Oakley-Lindsay Center, located at 300 Civic Center Plaza in Quincy.

Rapid testing will still remain free and available for anyone who lives, works, or visits Adams County. Results will be given on the same day the test is done, and results are received within 30 - 40 minutes of taking the COVID test. To make the process go faster for you, participates are asked to fill out the paperwork prior to going to the testing site. Paperwork will be available for anyone who needs it.

If you have any addition questions or concerns you are encourage to follow the ACHD on Facebook, or call the COVID-19 Hotline (217-277-3504). For general questions about COVID-19, call the Illinois Department of Public Health COVID-19 Hotline 1-800-889-3931 or email: DPH.SICK@ILLINOIS.GOV.

This is a great sign, less test are needed and the vaccine is being distributed to those who are able to get vaccinated. We've all waited a long time for this vaccine to come and now we are seeing a decrease for the need of testing, this is a good sign. We are getting there. To see if you are able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine click on the Adams County Health Department website. You will be able to make your appointment there as well.
