Long term Parking lot Area will host the new site
(Bloomington, Ill)…Central Illinois Regional Airport and CampusTown Urgent Care announce a collaboration to offer the community and frontline essential airport staff a new location for the CampusTown mobile COVID-19 testing facility. The drive-up testing site will begin operating in the long-term parking lot of the Central Illinois Regional Airport at 3201 CIRA Drive, Bloomington, on Monday, December 21, 2020. Hours of operation are 9:00 a.m.- 5: 00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Preregistration at https://covidtest.center and an appointment are necessary prior to arrival for a test.
“This collaborative approach between CIRA and CampusTown Urgent Care helps to mitigate the pandemic in our community while at the same time serving essential frontline workers at the airport with access to rapid test results in accordance with CDC guidelines.“ said Bloomington-Normal Airport Authority Chairman Jay Allen. “This ensures the safe, ongoing, efficient operation of the essential services provided at CIRA. “
The mobile site operated in the parking lot at The Sports Enhancement Center since mid-April. The new location provides easy access to the testing facility off Route 9 while using the airport’s road and parking lot infrastructure to process the traffic flow.
“We are excited to move our facility to the airport parking lot location so we can continue to provide this urgently needed drive-up rapid test facility to the area., “ said Pam Pliura, co-owner of CampusTown Urgent Care with her husband, Dr. Tom Pliura of LeRoy. “We are grateful to Sports Enhancement for the use of their facility to date but realized that as the demand for testing has grown a new location was necessary. We appreciate CIRA’s willingness to work with us and provide the space.”
Entrance to the new site will be through CIRA Drive West, following the directional signage to enter the long-term parking area from the north circulation road. The mobile testing site will be on the west end of the long-term parking area. Those seeking a test are asked to remain in their vehicles and only come to the site at their pre-registered designated appointment time.##
