Covid Testing Available
Recently, we received approval and the supplies to be able to administer the rapid COVID-19 test to our faculty/staff and students. The rapid COVID-19 test will provide results within 15 minutes.
This is completely optional and voluntary for your student. We are offering this to help better protect our school. We will only test, with your consent, when there are symptoms or possibly close contact. Due to a limited supply of tests, we will only test under these conditions.
Attached to this email is the consent form that will need to be completed before the test is administered. I recommend that if you wish to give St. Joseph consent to administer the test, to complete this form and have it on your student’s file for future use. Even with the consent form, before we test, we will call you. The consent form will need to be turned into the front office.
Returning the consent form does not mean we will immediately test your student. It will be kept on file for future use if there is a need to test your student if they are symptomatic or close contact. There is more detailed information on the consent form about the test.
