MySHIELDIllinois Test Scheduling

If your organization has purchased tests through SHIELD Illinois, schedule your appointment here. Be prepared to show an organizational ID when you arrive for your test.

Our testing sites administer innovative saliva-based tests, a process developed by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  Unlike conventional nasal testing, saliva samples are collected non-invasively.

ELIGIBILITY
Presently, the test is only available to individuals who are part of an organization that has purchased these tests.  Your name and employee or student ID has been preloaded into the system.  Please ensure that you bring your employee/student ID with you to the testing site.

COST
The test is free.

BEFORE GETTING TESTED
You should refrain from eating, drinking, tooth brushing, mouth washing, gum chewing, and tobacco use for at least one hour before submitting your saliva sample at the test location.

While you line up outside the testing location, you should wear a face covering and practice social distancing.

THE TESTING PROCESS
You will be asked to provide a saliva sample. The sample collection only takes a few minutes.
