Cook County COVID Metric
IDPH does direct-ship for some schools. CCDPH requires pick up in Oak Forest.
If schools work with the SHIELD program, they will also assist with the following for BinaxNOW: training, reporting, CLIA waiver, physician standing order. They will still need to order BinaxNOW tests through CCDPH or IDPH.
SHIELD signup via emailing Beth Heller, Senior Director of External Affairs for SHIELD, at [email protected] or clicking here.
