Free COVID-19 Rapid Tests for Vulnerable Illinoisans

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is distributing at-home, over-the-counter COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to economically disadvantaged Illinois families in zip codes outside the city of Chicago. Households can:

  • Find out if they are in an eligible zip code
  • Request one package of five tests
  • Get tests on a first-come, first-served basis at the Project ACT website

The tests will be delivered to the home address.

Free COVID-19 testing locations are available throughout the state, including in Chicago. You can find testing sites on the IDPH website’s testing locator page.
