Need to cancel your weekly testing?

You do not need to reschedule due to any of the below listed reasons. However, you will still need to test that same week or the day you return to campus:

  • a meeting or special assignment came up during the time of your scheduled testing – get your testing done at any time the same day of your scheduled testing
  • taking a sick/vacation day of the day of your testing – get your testing done the same week of your regularly scheduled testing or the day you return to campus as soon as possible

Test Results

Once the lab receives the samples, results are expected within the same day and should not exceed 48 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. All initial positive tests and failed tests are re-tested to ensure the validity of the result.

The lab will automatically upload test results into Health Services’ electronic health record—Medicat—and the IDPH database. Test results will be shared with the individual via a patient portal secure message. Simply choose University of Illinois, then sign in with your NetID and password.
