Covid-19 Testing Guidance

In order to assist Winnebago families, parents, and staff in need of a Covid-19 test, we have put together a list of the following recommended sites available to obtain testing. Please note that only RT-PCR Covid-19 test results will be accepted:


  • Call your health care provider to see if they offer testing
  • Visit the free, drive-up testing at the University of Illinois College of Medicine (UICOM) at 1601 Parkview Avenue in Rockford, 7 days a week from 8am-4pm
  • Crusader Testing Site: 3150 North Rockton Ave, Rockford (formerly Schnucks) Open Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.,1:00pm - 4:30pm or until daily supplies run out. Friday from 9am – 12:30 p.m., 1:00pm - 4:00pm or until daily supplies run out.
  • Starting 10/26, Mercyhealth Urgent Care in Roscoe and on Perryville Rd (815-971-8000) will be able to perform a rapid screen, billable to insurance. You will be seen by a physician and you must have symptoms for 1 to 6 days to get a Covid test ordered. You may also be given an alternate diagnosis that you can provide to the school. The Perryville location's hours are 7am-9pm, 7 days a week. Close contacts without symptoms will not be tested.


We will continue to provide updates to testing locations and methods as they become available. Thank you for your continued understanding of this fluid situation. Stay well, everyone!
