More information includes, individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days do not need to participate in gateway testing and should submit their documentation (if they did not test positive through the University Testing Center) to firstname.lastname@example.org, according to WIU.
Also, WIU stated that individuals can elect to conduct a gateway test off campus, however, the test must be a PCR-based test to be equivalent to the test modality provided at the on-campus testing clinics. Once results are received, the results can be sent to the Off-Campus COVID-19 Test Results Portal. To be compliant for the previous week, test results must be received by 11:59 p.m. Sunday evenings.
