Today's listed statistics for Covid-19 cases of Evanston residents:
Confirmed cases: 763 (two new cases since yesterday). Deaths: 66 (no additional deaths since yesterday), according to the City’s website.
Today, state health officials announced 593 new known cases of COVID-19 and 55 additional deaths, bringing the total number of known cases to 134,778 and the death toll to 6,537 statewide since the start of the pandemic. Officials also reported 25,504 new tests in the last 24 hours.
Also today, the City of Evanston’s Health and Human Services Department announced that it is partnering with AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital to offer two COVID-19 health screening and testing events to Evanston residents who may not otherwise have access to testing or online virtual health visits.
Community testing will be offered at the James Park Field House parking lot, located on Mulford Street west of Dodge Avenue and the Levy Senior Center, on the following days while supplies last:
Monday, June 22, 10 a.m. to noon
Monday, June 29, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Testing will be offered in a drive-through format; however, walk-ins will also be accepted. Testing is free, and no appointment is needed to participate. A doctor will be on site to answer questions, and Spanish-speaking team members will be available to assist, as needed.
Participants in need will be provided with a face covering upon arrival, and should maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from non-family members at the event.
Test results are expected to be available within four days of testing. AMITA Health St. Francis Hospital will follow up with all who are tested to provide results, whether positive or negative, and additional education and instructions, as needed.
In addition to these community testing events, residents can access free testing at State community-based testing sites. Testing may also be provided through a resident's primary healthcare provider.
