In May, in partnership with Rapid Control and Medstar Labs, District 47 started serving as a host site for free COVID PCR testing for D47 staff, students and families. Test kits may be picked up on weekdays throughout the summer at the CORE Center (300 Commerce Drive, Crystal Lake) between 7:30am and 3:45pm; appointments are not necessary. Individuals can enter the vestibule through Door 2 to access the kits and a form. Instructions for the swab test are posted on the wall in both English and Spanish; individuals are encouraged to take a photo of the instructions to refer to at home. Completed tests can be dropped off in a collection box outside Door 2 at the CORE Center and will be picked up daily by Medstar. Results are typically available within 48 hours.
