Free Asymptomatic Student COVID Testing
January 13, 2021
We did learn of two cases today:
1 adult at Willard
1 student at CMS
Last night, the Joint School Committees supported the districts’ participation in the upcoming free six week on-site asymptomatic PCR pooled COVID testing program funding by the Department of Public Health and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. In this program, 10 nasal samples are bundled together and analyzed. The pool comes back positive or negative. If it is positive, the individuals in the pool need to be tested individually. Our hope is that this six week program will allow us to get started and then determine the next steps.
Our greatest need right now is to understand the level of student participation. If you intend for your child to participate, please complete this anonymous form. Please submit one form for each child.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Have a great night!
