All members of the WIU community, and members of the Macomb and surrounding communities, are invited to participate in this test opportunity. In addition to drive-thru lanes, there will be a designated bike/walkup lane in place.

WIU Self-Checker :

Individuals residing and working on WIU's campuses are still required to complete the WIU self-checker daily. During the University's holiday shutdown Dec. 24-Jan. 3, reminders will be suspended. Reminder notifications will resume Monday, Jan. 4. Due to not knowing whether individuals may still have a need to come to campus, individuals will continue to receive notification reminders of the self-check as a precautionary measure. If an individual does not plan on physically being on campus, they do not need to submit an assessment.

"We would like to thank our University community for your flexibility and for adhering to the practices and protocols instituted by WIU over the last several months," said Executive Director of Auxiliary Services and Risk Management Joe Roselieb. "Your cooperation has greatly aided in our ability to make it through the fall semester. As we begin to look to the Spring 2021 semester, we want to remind everyone to be mindful of their health, as well as those around them."
