Testing Dates

At this time Western Illinois University has moved to surveillance testing with a population of the campus community being selected each week for a COVID-19 test. Individuals selected for surveillance testing will receive information on how to setup an appointment via WIU email.

If an individual is selected during the surveillance testing phase who has previously been positive for COVID-19, they should notify the Beu Health Center 309-298-1888 to make testing providers aware and to receive additional guidance.

Things to Know:


  • Simple nasal swabs will be used.

  • You will be called within a couple of hours of taking the test with your results.

  • If you are positive, an email will be sent within a few hours for all negative test results.

  • No cost for testing.



Testing at this location is limited to current WIU students, faculty, and staff only. All participants must make an appointment unless otherwise noted.
You do not need to bring your insurance card.

Members of WIU Athletic teams should not test at this location and instead follow instructions provided by the WIU Athletic Department regarding testing.

Testing Site

The Illinois Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the McDonough County Health Department will host a series of free drive-thru COVID-19 test dates on the WIU-Macomb campus on select dates in the Tanner Circle, located in the far-east section of Q-Lot.
