NIU, the Illinois Department of Public Health and the DeKalb County Health Department are partnering to offer our community free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 10, through Tuesday, Jan. 12.  Employees and students who are not in the NIU Surveillance Testing program are strongly encouraged to participate to help reduce the spread of the virus.

Simple nasal swabs will be used, and participants will be called with results within 4-7 days.

Testing will take place in the Convocation Center parking lot at 1525 W. Lincoln Hwy. Participants must be in cars, and should enter from Lincoln Highway.
