Gwinnett County Public Schools is expanding its COVID-19 Surveillance Testing pilot to include students and staff in the Grayson Cluster. The sign-up form will be active Monday – Thursday (ONLY) of each week. You must be signed up by 11:59 PM on Thursday in order to test the following Friday (8 days later).
More about the Grayson Cluster COVID-19 Testing Pilot:
Routine COVID-19 testing (also called surveillance testing) can quickly detect individuals who are positive with COVID-19 and trace contacts who should quarantine. The testing, which is free and will be conducted on a weekly basis at the school, uses a short Qtip-type swab to collect a sample from inside the nose. This testing will allow GCPS to test, receive test results (within 24 hours), and notify individuals of a clinically significant reading. By participating, students and staff members can help to minimize the spread of the virus within our schools, which benefits us all.
Although participation in surveillance testing is not required for students or staff members, it is strongly encouraged. Participation will contribute to the success of this mitigation strategy and our schools’ ability to limit the spread of COVID and keep students learning in person.
