Neither site requires identification. Both are FREE and will test all people, regardless of symptoms.

The University of Illinois College of Medicine Rockford is not involved in any aspect of the daily operation of the COVID-19 testing center nor is it involved in the lab work. However, as a public service, the college agreed to have the testing facility be located at its campus, the UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford.

Wellness Activities for Employees

Anne Zuba, LCSW, of Student Health and Wellness, will provide some wellness support for employees during this extremely difficult time in our world and community. She will be offering a 30-minute wellness and meditation session weekly on Tuesdays at noon.  Each week I will briefly introduce and discuss a self-care topic such as Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, Relaxation Training, Guided Imagery and Gratitude Journaling.  This will be followed by an associated guided meditation.  These self-care tools are all evidenced-based interventions highly effective for coping with anxiety, stress, depression, pain, trauma, addictions and more.

Sessions begin on Tuesday, June 9, and run through the end of July. The topic of each session will be in eNews the previous week.  Weeks 1 and 2 will be Mindfulness meditation introductions and practice, including Mindful breathing and the Mindful body scan meditations. If you are interested in any of the sessions, please RSVP to the Dean’s Office at [email protected] each week by Monday morning at 10:00 a.m.  If there are not enough participants, the session will be cancelled.
