Community COVID Screening

Community SHIELD Testing for Thursday, February 3, 2022 has been cancelled due to inclement weather.  No samples will be collected.

All participants will need to present a Shield IL account registration to participate.

In cooperation with the Illinois Department of Public Health, Triad CUSD#2 is hosting a SHIELD IL COVID-19 Community Screening event every Thursday from 3pm to 6:30pm at Triad High School.   Instead of a nasal swab, the covidSHIELD test uses saliva and only takes a few minutes to collect a sample.   Please beware that participants can not eat or drink one hour prior to testing to provide a valid collection sample for a conclusive result. The results are known within 24-48 hours and are made available through an online portal to each patient.  To learn about the saliva-based SHIELD IL Test, click here.  

IDPH recommends testing before attending functions with loved ones especially if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or work in a high-risk setting.  To begin,  visit and use the agency code "df5brbrj" when creating your portal account.

To expedite the collection process, please have a Shield IL Portal account created prior to entering the sample collection area at the school.
