Mandated COVID-19 Testing for Unvaccinated Staff Protocol

In the past three weeks, Peoria Public Schools 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 on Monday or Wednesday at any of our district's designated locations:
