Parkland College has discontinued the COVID-19 entry checking system, and will reopen all entrances to campus facilities. You will not be expected to use the Safer Community app.
The Shield CU testing site at Parkland has closed as of June 30, along with several other community-based testing sites, due to the end of state funding for the program.
We are grateful for the opportunity to have served our community in this capacity during a time of critical need. We know that by providing a free and accessible location for community COVID-19 testing, Parkland College has played a small role in keeping the community safe and healthy over the past year.
Individuals are instructed to check with their health provider or Champaign-Urbana Public Health District for COVID-19 testing options moving forward. Free at-home testing kits continue to be available through www.covid.gov. The Parkland College COVID-19 Response Team will continue to accept test results from area health care providers and at-home testing kits.
We appreciate your patience and partnership in helping us keep our community safe throughout the past two years.
