Covid Testing 12/21/20 through 1/3/2021

1/3/2021 Covid Testing Update

In December, NYS designated both the City and Town of Lockport a yellow zone effective 12/21/2020. Schools in designated yellow zone areas needed to test 20% of students and staff for COVID-19 within two weeks. Below you will find the results of testing for students/staff between 12/21/2020 and 1/3/2021. As of this afternoon, we have tested 27%.

Based on this testing period, the current positivity rate at DeSales is well under the current Niagara County infection rate. Based on the results of this testing, we will continue to remain open for in-person instruction. School resumes from Christmas Break, tomorrow, 1/4/2021.

Thank you to all the students, faculty & staff who tested!
