What To Know About Testing Before You Go

Bring These Items

Bring a photo ID and an insurance card only if you have one. Insurance cards are accepted if you have one, but you are not required to display proof of health insurance in order to be tested for COVID-19. Insurance will be billed only if applicable. There is no cost to be tested at any of the Heartland Health Testing Locations or the IEMA Testing Location (located near the Peoria Civic Center).

COVID-19 Symptoms

Testing is especially encouraged for individuals showing symptoms consistent of COVID-19. The symptoms include: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headaches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
