Weekly COVID testing at PS 58

HealthComments Off on Weekly COVID testing at PS 58

The testing team will visit our school each week.  Students in grades 1 to 5, and staff, will be selected randomly for COVID testing. Make sure you have given permission for your child to be tested (either through your NYCSA at  or through Operoo).

Parents of students who were tested will bring home a letter explaining how to obtain test results.  If a student tests positive, their parent will be notified directly and quarantine instructions will be communicated.  If any of a student’s close school contacts test positive, parents will be notified and will receive instructions for quarantine.

Families can visit the COVID-19 testing page at the DOE website for answers to many questions about testing at school.

A student who is reluctant to be tested will not be forced to be tested.  We recommend that families review the video of the testing process at the DOE website, which demonstrates how easy and non-invasive the test actually is.
