  • COVID-19 tests for PPS staff

    Posted by Dr. Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat on 9/16/2021 5:00:00 PM

    In the past three weeks, our Peoria Public Schools team has devised and implemented a plan to adhere to Governor Pritzker’s executive order mandating that all educational personnel receive the COVID-19 vaccine or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing.


    As of today, more than 61% of our staff are either fully or partially vaccinated against COVID-19. We are also happy to report that more than 50 staff members have begun the vaccination process since the Governor’s announcement last month.

    Beginning Monday, Sept. 20, 2021, unvaccinated staff must complete a COVID-19 test conducted by Reditus Labs every week at any of our district's designated locations:  

    days, times COVID-19 testing

    In the meantime, we strongly encourage all Peoria Public Schools staff to seek out the COVID-19 vaccine. You can find a list of locations and dates for upcoming COVID-19 vaccine clinics by clicking here.
