NOSD District Nurse Update
Washington and Ozaukee Counties have partnered with Curative, Inc. to provide free oral COVID-19 testing at Washington County Fair Park and Ozaukee County Fairgrounds. Testing is available Monday through Friday (but closed on Wednesdays). The tests are self-administered PCR oral swabs; results are texted or e-mailed within 48 hours. Due to delays, results may take up to 72 hours at times. Testing is open from 8am–4pm on Monday, 10am-6pm on Tuesday, 10am-2pm on Thursday, and 12-4pm on Friday at each location. Residents will need to register ahead of time in order to guarantee a test and bring their insurance cards and a photo ID. Testing is free, with no out-of-pocket costs. Individuals without insurance will not be turned away. Appointments can be scheduled online through Curative’s website: www.curative.com
If your child(ren) will be taking prescription medication at school you will need to fill this form out and bring with the prescription medication (in original bottle) to the district nurse.
Up-Dating Immunization Records
Students entering 6th grade often need an immunization shot, please check with your doctor to make sure you are up to date with immunizations. Below are the requirements and form.
Mail a new copy to the District Nurse to update your child’s record when any additional dose(s) of vaccines are received. If your child still needs any of these vaccines, we encourage you to have your child immunized well before school starts to avoid the late summer rush. Waivers are available for religious, health and personal conviction reasons.
Secure computer vaccine records may be available for parents to view through the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR). http://dhfswir.org. For more information on WIR or obtaining your child’s records on WIR, please contact the Washington / Ozaukee County Public Health Department.
