COVID-19 Rapid Testing Now Available at IRCSD
If an Indian River Central School District student or staff member develops or exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 while at school, our Health Services staff can now perform a simple, non-invasive rapid test to screen them. All students and staff will need a signed permission slip prior to testing. Nursing staff will call the student’s parent/guardian for final permission prior to performing the test. (It is important to note that students should NOT be sent to school with symptoms, but we do realize that symptoms do sometimes appear during the school day.) Test results will be sent home with students. Parents will be notified immediately if their student tests positive for COVID-19 and will be required to pick the student up from school.
In the video above, IRCSD Medical Director O. Jeanne Dolly and Superintendent Mary Anne Dobmeier demonstrate the non-invasive technique used for these rapid COVID-19 tests.
