CCSD 89 will no longer be participating in SHIELD testing

Community Consolidated School District 89 will no longer be participating in the SHIELD COVID-19 testing program. In November, the company providing SHIELD testing to CCSD 89 informed the district that they would no longer be able to provide the surveillance screening.

SHIELD testing was being used to screen students who are participating in higher-risk activities (indoor sports, chorus, band) but are not vaccinated against COVID-19. The district will no longer provide screening for these students. Free Binax COVID-19 tests are available at all five schools for any student who has COVID-19 symptoms.
