EIU partners with SHIELD Illinois to bring COVID rapid saliva testing to campus


EIU has entered into an agreement with SHIELD Illinois to bring widespread saliva testing to our campus communities. This increased level of testing will deliver another layer of protection to EIU's campus and further safeguard the health and wellness of its students, employees, and broader community.
EIU’s partnership with the SHIELD program will begin Tuesday, January 19, and allow the University to conduct free weekly COVID surveillance testing, complete with a 24-hour turnaround time for test results. Each week, 500 students and employees will be randomly selected for participation.
