CHICAGO — One of the city’s free coronavirus testing sites will be closed Tuesday so people can vote.
The testing site at Prieto Math and Science Academy, 2231 N. Central Ave., will be closed Tuesday, according to the Chicago Department of Public Health. The other city-run sites will remain open, and testing at Prieto is expected to continue as normal Monday and in the days after Tuesday.
The school is one of the three static sites the city has used for COVID-19 tests. It has been widely used, particularly as coronavirus has resurged in Chicago.
But the school is serving as a polling place for 4th and 5th precinct voters in the 36th Ward come Election Day.
Testing at the city’s static and mobiles sites is free and available to every Chicagoan, regardless of their documentation status or insurance. It’s typically available 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
