Test To Stay Program
We are making some changes to follow the most recent guidance from the state department of health and quarantine periods. As usual the timing wasn’t the best. Right after we sent information home with students about the Test to Stay program, the state guidance changed. The new required quarantine time is seven days for students or staff who are symptom free and can produce a negative PCR or rapid antigen test result taken on day 5, 6, or 7 after exposure (students or staff with symptoms are still required to get a PCR Covid test).
In the end, this news shortens the quarantine time for students and staff who are close contacts. Students who are identified as a close contact with another student at school can participate in Test to Stay and this process is now seven days instead of ten days. Students exposed outside of school can return to school after seven days, too, as long as they are symptom free and produce a negative PCR or rapid antigen test result taken on day 5, 6, or 7 after exposure. Anyone who is a close contact who does not participate in Test to Stay or refuses to get tested, must still stay quarantined for ten days and can return to school after that window of time has passed as long as the individual is symptom free.
This new time frame above combined with the recent eligibility to get vaccinated for students ages 5-11 will combine to keep more kids in school as we progress through the school year.
COVID Testing for Students with Symptoms
*Exception: If your student has tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days, please call the school for testing directions.
We have had fast results and excellent reviews from this site in Auburn:
And here are other testing sites in Pierce County: Testing Information
