Important update on COVID-19 testing for university family members
April 2, 2021 3:32 PM

Dear faculty, staff and students,

Last week, we sent a message announcing the launch of SHIELD CU and inviting family and household members of University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign faculty, staff and students to begin testing at the State Farm Center on April 2.

We are currently experiencing an unexpected minor technical issue with the Safer Community App, preventing family members with Android devices from being able to enroll in the program. The app provider has identified the issue and we expect it will be corrected within a day or two. Apple users and anyone already registered in the program are clear to test, but new Android users will need to watch for the new version of the app and download it before testing.

To ensure the best experience for your family and household members, we are delaying the program launch until a later date.

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to maximize the safety of our community through the SHIELD CU program.
