If you think you have contracted the Coronavirus, and need COVID-19 Testing in the Effingham, Forsyth, Taylorville, or Litchfield areas, the team at Central Illinois Urgent Care is here to help. We offer both Rapid Covid Testing, PCR testing, as well as Antibody testing on-site.  Our state-of-the-art urgent care center is equipped to diagnose a variety of different illnesses, including COVID-19 and its symptoms.

When it comes to effective COVID-19 testing, having all of the facts is absolutely necessary. If you believe you have contracted the Coronavirus or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, the first step is to come in for a thorough examination. At Central Illinois Urgent Care, we’re able to provide residents of Effingham, Forsyth, Taylorville and Litchfield, with the proper COVID testing, in part, because we perform the tests on-site, with Rapid Test results usually ready in 15 minutes, and PCR Test results typically back within 24 to 48 hours. Depending on the results of the test, we can then begin to answer questions that you might have, as well as provide treatment for symptoms or refer you to specialists if needed.

We provide the following tests on-site, with patients being tested from their vehicles.

  • Rapid Test (also referred to as antigen test). This test detects protein fragments specific to the Coronavirus. Turnaround time for results is usually very quick and in some cases, results can be reported within 15 minutes.
  • PCR test. PCR testing is considered the “gold standard” in COVID-19 detection. This test actually detects RNA (or genetic material) that is specific to the virus and can detect the virus within days of infection, even those who have no symptoms. Turnaround time is longer, generally within 2-3 business days, depending on demand.
  • Antibody Testing. Covid-19 Antibody Testing is helpful for those who have recently recovered from COVID-19, or those who believe that they have already had COVID-19 but were asymptomatic or were not tested at that time. The test will determine if you have developed antibodies against the virus. The presence of antibodies indicate that you were likely infected with COVID-19 at some time in the past.

In addition to COVID-19 testing, we also offer many other services in Effingham, Forsyth, Taylorville, and Litchfield areas, including immunization administration, treatment for minor injuries and illnesses, and pregnancy tests, among others.

Patient Reviews

I have been in here several times as my family doctor is located in Springfield. I have always had an excellent experience. Highly recommend.

Shelly O.


Excellent service! Will go again, if needed of course!

Friendly staff who really care about your health.

Robert K.


I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place: from the staff, the cleanliness, the professional attitudes, the no-wait time, the kind and caring Dr. Toofan, to the sticker on the way out... excellent! Very impressed.

Jesse M.


Love love this place!! I have been taking my daughter here when she is sick since she was 3 months old! They give me what I need and if you don't need it they don't! I trust them very much! This place is a lot more money then other places in regards to my insurance coverage, but you can't buy trust!

Jared & Kristin W.


I can't give enough stars to this AMAZING place! We got in and out within 30 minutes. Staff was so polite and nice. Dr. Beth was great with my little one. Not only was our experience in the facility a great one, but Dr. Beth personally called me the next day to check on my Baby. That meant a lot to me. I have a hard time trusting Drs that aren't our regular one, but I definitely will be revisiting here if ever needed.

I just left here and although I'm sick with BRONCHITIS my soul was happy to have Dr. Toofan, Paul MD as my provider today. He was very attentive and friendly. The staff was also amazingly friendly. The facility is absolutely gorgeous for an express care clinic!!!

My little one was sick, whilst we were out of town on a Sunday. I had seen this Urgent Care from the interstate & decided to see if they were open. They were & even opened the door a few min. early to let us in. The office was clean, & the staff was very kind & courteous. Dr. Toofan was great with my daughter (he has kids) & got us in and out very quickly. They had her RX available there, if we didn't want to go to a pharmacy. Having just received a call (just over 24 hours from the initial visit) from the Dr. (not from the receptionist or even a nurse) to see how things were going, I felt that a review was definitely deserved. This is exactly what an Urgent Care should be!

I prefer Taylorville Urgent Care over the ER. You are greeted the second you come through the door and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes, if that to be seen. The staff is very friendly, well experienced, professional, and knowledgeable. They are very thorough in their workup and treatment of your health issue. Further, medial supplies, if needed, are provided for your injuries that the hospital will not provide. The staff seems to be genuinely concerned about providing the best care possible. I consider this service to be state of the art. I'm extremely happy they are here. This care facility is definitely an asset to Taylorville.

Cathy R.
