PEOTONE — The state of Illinois will sponsor a temporary, drive-thru testing site in Peotone this weekend.

Testing hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, and Sunday, Oct. 18, at Peotone High School, 605 W. North St., Peotone.

There is no cost for the testing, but organizers ask that you bring your insurance card. You still can be tested if you don’t have insurance. Testing is open to residents of Will and surrounding counties. It will be available regardless of symptoms or sickness.
