Beginning Monday, Oct. 11, free COVID-19 testing will be offered on KCC’s Riverfront Campus in Kankakee as a convenience to students. The tests are offered through Loop Medical Center and are PCR tests. 

Appointments are required. You can make appointments and access your results through Loop Medical Center’s secure and HIPPA-approved web portal. More information regarding registration and how to access the portal will be sent to your KCC student email on Wednesday, Oct. 6.

The weekly test schedule is: 
Mondays: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Tuesdays: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Wednesdays: 7 a.m. - 1 p.m.

If you are curious about the test, or want to see a preview of the testing process, representatives from Loop Medical Center will be available Friday, Oct. 8 from 9-11 a.m. in the Cavalier Room at KCC. 

Illinois’ Governor requires higher education students who are on campus regularly to either be vaccinated against COVID-19 or to complete a weekly COVID-19 test. The college will follow prescribed measures to ensure the order is followed. 

You can avoid weekly tests if you are vaccinated. Already vaccinated? Please provide your proof of vaccination if you have not already done so.
