This year, they strongly recommend that you schedule your blood draw online at www.WHF.Health/Appointments or call to schedule an appointment at 800-979-3711.  They indicated that walk-ins may face long wait times. 

Also, a reminder that fasting for 12 hours prior to the blood draw is recommended, unless you are diabetic.  Drink plenty of water and take your medications as usual.

WHF also provided the following information for Covid-19 safety:

This year has certainly handed us new things to consider. I wanted to share with you some changes at WHF to address the COVID concerns:

  • Appointments will be scheduled to allow for social distancing. This is done online or by calling 800-979-3711. We are doing this for all locations and events. Your employees can schedule appointments at our website at whf.health/appointments for the Evanston event now.
  • As a healthcare organization, we are requiring face coverings for all participants. We can provide one, if necessary.
  • Each person who arrives will be offered hand sanitizer and will have their temperature checked by either a forehead or ear reading. The standard CDC questions will also be asked and documented. These questions relate to possible symptoms, known exposures and travel.
  • We will have additional protections in place, including but not limited to Plexiglass barriers at the computer stations and screens to separate the stations.
  • Each WHF employee will use personal protective equipment: gloves, gowns, face masks, face shields, etc.
  • Stations will be disinfected between each person. Pens will not be reused, until disinfected.

The results can be picked up at the Drive-thru Health Fair, which will take place at Evanston Regional Hospital on Saturday September 26th from 8am until noon. If you cannot pick up your results that day, they will be mailed to you.
