The Will County Health Department will continue to provide free testing for COVID-19 to the public throughout July at various locations.

The Will County Community Health Center is providing testing for the virus free to anyone who wants to be tested. No money will be collected at the testing sites, and those tested will not receive a bill.

Any resident who does not have medical insurance still will be able to receive a free test, according to the Will County Health Department.

The health center will be testing at the city of Braidwood building Tuesday, July 7. The city building is located at 141 W. Main St. in Braidwood.

There also will be testing at the Joliet Park District facility, 141 W. Jefferson St., on Wednesday, July 8.
