Beginning next week (April 11), the following changes will take effect regarding COVID-19 testing on the UIS campus.


Faculty, staff, students and long-term guests who are not up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines (not fully vaccinated, or eligible for the booster but have not received it) may transition from testing twice per week to once per week. Compliance will continue to be closely monitored. Individuals who are up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccines continue to have the option to test but are not required.


The SHIELD saliva-based testing site in the PAC will adjust its hours to the following, effective April 11:

  • 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays
  • 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays

If this adjustment in testing hours will negatively affect your ability to meet your testing requirement, please contact the Dean of Students office (students) at or Human Resources (employees) at as soon as possible.

Please spread the word to help ensure your fellow students and colleagues are aware of these changes. Thank you for your continued focus on our efforts to stay United in Safety!
