The Governor’s Executive Order 2021-22 was modified to rescind vaccination and testing requirements for most of higher education.
Executive Order 2021-22 was modified in July to rescind vaccination and testing requirements for institutions of higher education. As a result, weekly testing is no longer required for most unvaccinated students, faculty, and staff.
In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order 2021-22, healthcare workers and K-12 school personnel who are not fully vaccinated are to participate in COVID-19 testing at least once every seven calendar days until fully vaccinated, and vaccination records are on file with Student Health Services. This includes, but is not limited to, individuals working in Illinois State University healthcare settings and laboratory schools, including students and student workers in these areas (e.g., nursing students, student teachers, students in clinical settings).
As a courtesy, the University will provide saliva-based SHIELD Illinois COVID-19 PCR self-administration test kits only for those individuals who are required to test per Executive Order 2021-22. More information will be provided directly via email to those who are required to test.
Students who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should contact Student Health Services to speak with a nurse.
Students who are not experiencing symptoms, but would like a test, can find local COVID-19 testing options by visiting the McLean County Health Department website.
Employees who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should contact their medical provider.
Information about local COVID-19 testing options is available by visiting the McLean County Health Department website.
