NORMAL, Ill. – Students at Illinois State University are now able to get tested for COVID-19 on campus.
Students that are not experiencing symptoms can get tested on campus Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Testing is offered at the Old Fire House at 602 N. Adelaide St. and on the quad.
Students have to have their Redbird ID to be tested. Afterwards students will be able to view their results in the Student Health Services portal within 1 – 3 business days.
Students that do experience symptoms can be tested through Student Health Services. The director of media relations, Eric Jome says the walk up testing is only for asymptomatic students.
“If students are experiencing symptoms they can contact Student Health Services,” says Jome. “It’s best to call first and tell them what’s going on. So that folk at Student Health Services can be prepared when you come in.”
The testing sites are being ran Reditus Laboratories for the rest of the semester. To keep students updated with cases on campus, the University has created a dashboard that gives automatic updates.
The dashboard will include data from the total positive cases at the university to the 7-Day positive rate.
