In partnership with the Delaware Department of Health and Quidel, The Laurel School District is offering free, weekly COVID-19 testing for all of our students beginning the week of November 15. To expedite the process, we recommend that you pre-register your student through Primary.Health’s platform: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.
The link above is specific to The Laurel School District. Registration will take no longer than 5 minutes to complete and will only need to be done once.
Here is a little more about the testing program and process:
Testing is voluntary but highly recommended. It is free of cost to you, so no insurance information is needed, nor will you ever be asked to pay for these tests
Testing will primarily be done through self-swabbing and will be monitored by medical staff on site - school staff will not be conducting the testing
The test being used for this program is the Quidel QuickVue. For more information on the test, please read the following link: Quidel QuickVue Fact Sheet
Results and communication will be shared electronically to the email and contact information used for registration
If your student tests positive, the school will contact you directly
The schedule for when your Laurel school will be offering COVID-19 testing will be shared soon
Thank you for helping us stay safe and prevent outbreaks! For questions, please contact Mrs. Susan Whaley, Director of Student Services: firstname.lastname@example.org
