COVID-19 Testing Program Dashboard

In the Fall, Benedictine University launched a COVID-19 testing program for undergraduate resident students and all student-athletes (commuter or resident) on the Lisle campus. This is part of the University’s multi-pronged strategy to mitigate and monitor the spread of COVID-19. The purpose of this testing program is to allow the University to monitor and address real-time trends and prevalence and make timely decisions on intervention and response.

This Spring, our COVID-19 testing program is for Faculty, Staff and Students who are in contact with another community member.  The community member will receive a weekly notice to register for testing.
